This book is a collection of Psalms, Canticles, Song of Songs and other devotional materials called a Psalter and is intended for use in personal or public worship. The text of this Psalter was written on parchment from approximately 1790 to 1800 BCE and six full-page paintings were added in the early 20th Century. The six paintings represent: Madonna and Child; Saint George and the dragon; the Crucifixion; Jesus (possibly raising Jairus’ daughter); the Last Supper; and the Ascension of Jesus.
The front and back covers are created from tooled leather and wooden boards.
