  Notes: From the "St. Albans Psalter", created at St. Abans Abbey essentially by Geoffrey de Gorham (or Gorron), Abbot of St. Albans (1119-46). Isaiah 38:10, 14: God looks down from Heaven to the jaws of hell below. Two demons stand in hell, holding the gates. King Hezekiah points to a book with the caption: "I said: in the midst of my life I shall go to the gates of hell." He points to his failing eye: "My eyes are weakened looking up to the heights."
