Introduction. One of the most famous forms of Medieval art, Irish illustrated manuscripts like the Book of Durrow (c) and the Book of Kells (c), were some of the first decorated Christian gospel texts, dating from the early seventh century CE.

In due course, they were followed by Medieval Christian artworks such as Carolingan and Byzantine illuminated manuscripts. The Pahlavi Psalter is a fragment of a Middle Persian translation of a Syriac version of the Book of Psalms, dated to the 6th or 7th century.

In Eastern Christianity (Eastern Orthodox, and in modern times also Byzantine Catholic), the Book of Psalms for liturgical purposes is divided into 20 kathismata or "sittings", for reading at Vespers and Matins. The aim of this psalter is to enable singers to do justice to the beauty of the psalms as revealed in the matchless English of Coverdale's translation in the Book of Common Prayer.

A psalter with commentary, which dates from aroundis a good example of Anglo-Norman decoration at Worcester. The psalter was decorated in two stages. Stage one was undertaken at the time of the psalter’s writing, and it involved the adding of initials in red, green and blue (see below).The Psalms have resulted in controversies between Jews and Christians over the centuries and it is only from the mid twentieth century onwards that the two traditions have worked side by side in the academy at least.

This is one of the very few volumes on the psalms to incorporate scholarship from both these traditions for nearly a century, and the result is a rich celebration of these.
