  Artist: UNKNOWN; Illustrator of 'St. Albans Psalter', England, first half of 12th century
  Date: First half of the 12th century
  Technique: Miniature

  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 131:1f.: Christ looks out mercifully at the humbly kneeling psalmist. "Lord my heart is not lifted up, neither are my eyes raised high." The psalmist points to a mother and weaning child and also straight to his own heart or soul. "Like the weaned child is toward his mother, so reward in my soul."
