This book is the first detailed analysis of an exquisitely illuminated thirteenth-century Parisian manuscript (The Royal Library, Copenhagen) which was owned by Christina of Norway (1234-1262), daughter of Håkon IV and wife of Philip of Castile and León. New information is provided about the Psalter’s medieval and later components, its liturgical and other functions, missing illuminations and texts, as well as its provenance and date. Furthermore, the stylistic and iconographic similarities between the Psalter and some of the most important manuscripts illuminated in Paris in the Period, like the three-volume Moralized Bibles, are discussed. Suggestions also are made about the meanings the texts and images might have had for their intended audience.
"... this first extensive investigation of the Christina Psalter. ... Marina Vidas has made a solid contribution to sholarship in her full study of the Christina Psalter. She has drawn attention to a number of issues that will merit further research, both with regard to the Psalter and to the larger context of thirteenth-century royal and aristocratic patronage."

"Der er tale om en meget smuk bog, som fortjener forfatteren såvel som forlaget stor ære."
