Additional Title: Psalter
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front 44:2A

Notes: Although there is no text to identity it, this is most likely a leaf from a psalter, as psalters often contained prefatory cycles before the text with images from the life of Christ and the life of David. There is no other context in which one would expect to find narrative scenes such as these back-to-back and without accompanying text.
