  Notes: From the "St. Albans Psalter", created at St. Abans Abbey essentially by Geoffrey de Gorham (or Gorron), Abbot of St. Albans (1119-46). In the centre, a tonsured man points to God who is flanked by angels. "I believe in God the father almighty." He also points to Christ: "One Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten son of God." Christ looks up to God, blessing. Beside him is Mary, linked to her son by the dove of the Holy Spirit: "Was incarnate by the Holy Ghost from the Virgin Mary."
