Subject

Manuscripts, Latin (Medieval and modern)
Psalters

Description

Written in Italy in the fifteenth century, probably a Ferial Psalter for Franciscan use. "Inclinavit dominus" is the opening antiphon for Feria 2 (Monday); its incipit here is followed, as is typical, by Psalm 114. It seems likely, therefore, that this miniature of St. Francis in the letter [D] stood at the beginning of the Psalm and that the manuscript from which it was cut was a Ferial Psalter for Franciscan use.
