  Artwork: Spare your monks I beseech you, o merciful kindness of Jesus
  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). Christ stands in the blue heavenly part of the initial reaching out to touch a nun, presumably Christina. She, and four monks, stand in the green terrestrial zone, but through her intercession she is able to reach Christ himself. One monk rests his hand on her shoulder and reaches towards Christ with a similar gesture to Christina.
