Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The St Albans Psalter, also known as the Albani Psalter or the Psalter of Christina of Markyate, is an English illuminated manuscript, one of several Psalters known to have been created at or for St Albans Abbey in the 12th century. It is widely considered to be one of the most important examples of English Romanesque book production: it is of almost unprecedented lavishness of decoration; it contains a number of iconographic innovations that would endure throughout the Middle Ages; it contains the earliest surviving example of French literature, the Chanson de St Alexis or Vie de St Alexis; and it was probably commissioned by an identifiable man and owned by an identifiable woman. Since the early 19th century it has been owned by the church of St Godehard, Hildesheim, but is now stored and administered at the nearby Dombibliothek (Cathedral Library). A single leaf from the manuscript is at the Schnütgen Museum, Cologne; one further leaf, and one further cutting, are missing from the volume, their whereabouts unknown.
