  Artwork: Rejoice in God
  Artist: UNKNOWN; Illustrator of 'St. Albans Psalter', England, first half of 12th century
  Date: First half of the 12th century
  Technique: Miniature
  Location: University of Aberdeen, Historic Collections
  Notes: From the "St. Albans Psalter", created at St. Abans Abbey essentially by Geoffrey de Gorham (or Gorron), Abbot of St. Albans (1119-46). Psalms 100:1: The head of God looks out at Moses who carries the tablets of the law. Beside him stands Aaron. Six Israelites stand behind them. The psalm is one of universal praise, but the illustration takes on the aspect of confession. Moses confesses the sins of the children of Israel who, with Aaron's support, had made a golden calf to worship.
