Connection with Brittany

According to Bischoff (Kat. §1871), the iconography of this important Gospel-book presents Breton features and belongs to the 'Saint-Amand-Schule', but 'unter Beteiligung eines bretonischen Buchmalers.' I am not aware of any other specific Breton connections in relation to this MS.
