  Artwork: Te Deum
  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). Christ is flanked by the cherubim and seraphim, all holding blank books. "Cherubin and seraphin cry out in endless call: Holy. Holy. Holy". Below are two tonsured figures wearing stoles and holding croziers. The upper figure holds an open book, the lower a closed book or tablet. "The holy church acclaims you." The two figures may be St.s Ambrose and Augustine who were considered to be authors of the Te Deum.
