The "Copenhagen Psalter"





The Wise Men on their way to Bethlehem.
From the "Folkeungepsalteret", a sumptuous manuscript of David's Psalms, which probably belonged to the Swedish royal family Folkunge. It was made in Southern England, c. 1150-75, and the miniatures are viewed as a masterpiece of English Romanesque art.
