The Book of Hours was the standard book of popular devotion in western Europe during the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Essentially it contained a series of short services, the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary, designed to be recited at different times of the day and night. These services first appeared during the 10th century and two important early copies, written in England shortly before the Norman Conquest, are preserved in manuscripts now in the British Library.
