Oriental (Ethiopic) Psalter

Our 400th manuscript goes online today: an Oriental (Ethiopic) Psalter.  It is a small volume – only 15 x 17.5 cm – written in the 13th century in the language of Ge’ez (or Ethiopic).

B.13.9, ff. 93v-94r
B.13.9, ff. 93v-94r

A note by W. A. Wright (a former Librarian and vice-Master of Trinity) gives some indication of the volume’s contents which include psalms and canticles, but we would love to know more …

Edit 21/7/15: The dating of this manuscript has now been queried. See for comparison Walters Ms W.768. If you have any further information about this manuscript, please let us know!
