The St. Albans Psalter to be displayed in Germany

The St. Albans Psalter, one of the world's best examples of manuscripts from the Romanesque period, is a cherished possession of the the Dombibliothek Hildesheim in Hildesheim, Germany. The removal of its binding has enabled the Dom-Museum Hildesheim to display individual leaves from the book in a special exhibit which will run December 9, 2009 until January 24, 2010. (photos)

From the website:

The St. Albans Psalter is one of the most fascinating examples of medieval manuscript illumination. Its illustrations consist of a series of luminous painted biblical scenes, richly coloured depictions of the lives of the saints and more than 200 large initials decorated with gold. The Psalter is one of the most famous manuscripts from the Romanesque period and is singular in its artistic originality.
