MS 0146-001
circa 1500
This is a trigesimo-segundo sized Psalter, circa 1500, in Middle Dutch. The text includes a calendar, litany, and offices. It is believed that it is from the Utrecht region possibly from one of the convents devoted to St. Katherine. Some pages have been cut from the book; these were most likely the highly decorated scenes that separated the various sections of the text. The book is handwritten on parchment in its original binding but is badly damages and missing parts of the book lock. There is writing on both inside covers and few pages, but it is illegible.
