Transcription problem... please help!

    Hi all,

    I'm transcribing some motets about Thomas Becket and there is one word in this line I cannot read.
    The whole line so far is "thomas carnem domuit crebro [revinio???] aspero conpescuit hanc clam cilicio". It is a problem of lots of minims I think, but then I am also unsure of the first letter, which on first inspection seems like an "i". However, on the rest of the page the "i" is always dotted, but here it is not. I thought it might be an "r", but then it doesn't look like the other r's on show in the line.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks! I'll see if I can make that work in my translation!

    I searched all through the liturgical texts for St. Thomas of Canterbury to find the source of this musical line. Could you tell me where you found it? It may help with the translation plus I'm very interested.
