Commentary on the Psalms, Fragment


Commentary on the Psalms, perhaps part of a larger Bible commentary; the fragment presents Ps. 34, 10 (first underscored Psalm text is verse 11: 'surgentes testes iniqui quae ignorabam interrogabant me') to Ps. 34, 13 (last underscored Psalm text is part of verse 13: 'humiliabam in ieiunio animam meam'). This is an extensive Psalm commentary as a single folium (of large proportions) holds only about two verses (Psalm text underscored).

Additional physical characteristics
  • Was used as a wrapper around a thin booklet, as is shown by the vertical fold and stitch marks halfway the page, damage along all sides and at the four corners (from use as a wrapper); some ink smutches from later additions; pricking and ruling visible (plummet); underscoring in red (Psalm text); original foliation on recto, top left-hand corner: 'cxxxv'; running titles in red: 'Psalmus' (verso) / 'xxxiiiius' (recto); main text by one hand, possibly French (littera textualis, 1250-1300), who also did the foliation, rubrication and perhaps the running titles; marginal references on verso by another hand, probably (near) contemporary to that of the main text (Jeronimus etc.); pen trials and other notations added by later hands, most likely when the sheet was already used as a wrapper, the oldest dating from the sixteenth century (alphabet in the lower margin on recto), the youngest one from around the year 2000 ('331,15 Euro', possibly the sales price of the fragment); writing below topline; no decoration.
