Unique medieval manuscript in the Utrecht University Library collection
The Utrecht Psalter is a book of psalms dating to the Carolingian dynasty. It’s one of the crown jewels of the Utrecht University Library collection. In October 2015 the Utrecht Psalter was added to the UNESCO Memory of the World Register. The richly illustrated, handwritten book was created nearly 1,200 years ago. A psalter is a collection of the 150 psalms from the Old Testament of the Bible. Those of the Christian and Jewish faiths use the Psalms during their prayers and services. Each psalm tells a different story.
