  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 143:1f.: On the left, David holds aloft the book with the caption: "Lord hear my prayer." Christ, who is lifted up by David, serves as an intercessor for the prayer, knocking on the rim of Heaven to obtain God's attention. On the other side are two men wielding sticks of authority and holding a book with the caption: "And do not enter into judgement."
