Publisher's description: The Psautier des Saint Louis manuscript, which is held in the National Library in Paris, holds an outstanding place even amongst an immensely rich array of codices. Manufactured for one of the most important rulers of the Middle Ages, the manuscript almost approaches the status of a relic. From a number of different sources, we know that Saint Louis IX prayed directly out of this Psautier, which was both artfully created and written for him. The Latin text of psalms is preceded by a magnificent cycle of pictures, with 78 full-page miniatures from the Old Testament and represents the highpoint of Gothic French Book Art.
