The embroidered binding of the Felbrigge Psalter



MANY fine medieval manuscripts are exhibited in the British Library's Grenville Library, but one of the most unusual is the Felbrigge Psalter (Sloane MS. 2400), which was probably written and illuminated in Northern France in about the middle of the thirteenth century. At some time the manuscript came to England and its calendar was altered, removing a number of the French saints and adding English ones, some having particular connections with East Anglia. Another apparent East Anglian link is the addition of the date of the dedication of Norwich Cathedral on 24 September.
