Text from Psalms


"An early vellum manuscript leaf in latin, apparently from a glossed pslater. Each side with 15 lines in the main text in a fine large proto-gothic hand, with gloss on either side and interlineation, these in smaller but equally careful hands, apparently from the same period. Paragraph flourishes in the glosses, rubrics in red, even versal initias in red." -- Phillip J Pirages
