The Books of Hours was traditionally written in Latin although many were written entirely or partially in European languages.

The original porpose of the Book of Hours was for lay people who wished to incorporate elements of their Christian practices into their daily devotional life. Reciting the hours centered on the reciting of Psalms and other prayers, and to achieve this aim a typical Medieval Book of Hours would contain:

  • A Calendar of Church feasts
  • An excerpt from the Gospels
  • The Fifteen Psalms of Degrees
  • The Seven Penitential Psalms
  • A Litany of Saints
  • An Office for the Dead
  • The Hours of the Cross
  • Various prayers
The text included a calendar of liturgical feast days and a series of prayers to be recited eight times a day, according to established practice. By the early Renaissance period the popularity of the Book of Hours demonstrated the growing interest of the laity in speaking directly with God and the saints, rather than exclusively through the church and the ordained clergy.
