First half of the 12th century
University of Aberdeen, Historic Collections
From the "St. Albans Psalter", created at St. Abans Abbey essentially by Geoffrey de Gorham (or Gorron), Abbot of St. Albans (1119-46). Psalms 147:1, 6: God tramples a sinner beneath his feet and prods him with the crozier.The psalmist points to this in the tag: "The Lord brings the wicked even down to the ground." He also points to the meek: "The Lord receives the meek into his protection." The meek are praising God, their raised hands forming a separate and disconnected element of the picture.
