Oxford Music Online defines a pontificale or pontifical as “A liturgical book of the Western Church containing rites proper to a bishop: the dedication of churches, the consecration of altars, the blessing of sacred vessels, conferral of clerical ordination, the blessing of abbots and abbesses, confirmation, the blessing of the holy oils. It often contains music for these rites.” The volume is printed in red and black throughout and contains woodcut illustrations and headings, and historiated and ornamental  initials.
