  Artwork: Appearance of the archangel Gabriel to Zechariah
  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). The archangel announces that the old priest shall produce a son, and at the same time, with a touch on the lips, strikes him dumb. The canticle of Zechariah, earning the scene a place in the psalter, is sung after the birth of the Baptist.
