One of the most compelling and provocative books of twelfth-century England, the Markyate Psalter was probably produced at St. Albans Abbey between 1120 and 1140. Heralded as a high point of English Romanesque illumination, the manuscript contains the Chanson de St. Alexis. Leading scholars of twelfth-century manuscript studies explore the Psalter, understanding it through new methodologies, pursuing innovative lines of inquiry. The collection shines fresh light on a well-known manuscript, and broadens the discourse about the book and its readers.

"...Readers interested in a deep dive of the Psalter itself will be thankful for such careful, detailed analyses and for such numerous, glistening, often full-page reproductions of the Psalter's pages and initials." --Lauren Mancia, The Medieval Review 18.10.08
