  Artwork: Lord I have cried to you, hear me
  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 141:1, 5, 10: This initial starts Psalm 142, but it illustrates verses in Psalm 141. David, holding two books, cries out to Christ: "Lord I have cried to you, hear me." On the left, the just man prepares to beat him with a stick, as mentioned in the tag and in the left book: "The just shall reproach me." A sinner attempts to anoint him with oil, as mentioned in the second book: "Do not let the oil of the sinner anoint my head." The sinner also trips David up with a snare: "Guard me from the snare that they have set for me."
