Gloss to Regius Psalter

Date: s. ximed, xii

Summary:

A tenth-century Latin psalter and canticles of the Roman version with continuous interlinear gloss in s. xmed. There are several additions in Old English from s. x to s. ximed. The additions from s. ximed are two maxims and two proverbs on fol. 6r, lines 14-20 and an 'Oratio' on fol. 6v beginning 'Min drihten leof for þinre þære micelan mildheortnysse'. There is also a note from s. ximed on fol. 198v referring to 'Christes cyrcan', associating the manuscript with Christ Church, Canterbury.

Old English glosses, s. xii, are on fols 9r, 29v, 62v and 69r, over erasures of earlier glosses.
