ABOUT THIS BOOK
<i>Jerome’s Abbreviated Psalter </i>was one of the most important collections of psalm verses in the Middle Ages. Commonly found in primers and books of hours, it was the primary medium for lay people to imitate the monastic divine office, and it illustrates an important aspect of lay devotional life from the eighth to the sixteenth century. This edition presents the Middle English versions in parallel, followed by the Latin version in the Lincoln Thornton manuscript.
