A Psalter in Latin with Canticles, Creeds, etc., Written in the first half of the 14th century in the Netherlands (?)

MS. Canon. Liturg. 126

  • How to
    request
A Psalter in Latin with Canticles, Creeds, etc., preceded by a Calendar (fol. 1v), and followed by a Litany (fol. 227). Leaves are lost after fols. 237, 244. St. Servatius is in red in the Calendar on May 20, and his translation is at June 14: so the volume probably belongs to the district of Maestricht.

There are some miniatures (one at fol. 14 apparently of the murder of St. Thomas a Becket) and borders, etc., and at the foot of each page grotesques: and in the Calendar, vignettes of the occupation of each month.
