The Macclesfield Psalter Large Advent Calendar


SKU: FMAC13 Categories: ,


The Macclesfield Psalter: ‘ A window into the world of Medieval England’.  The Macclesfield Psalter (so named after its modern-day owner, the Earl of Macclesfield), is one of the great art treasures of East Anglia.  It is a prayer book and was made in the 1330s, probably in Norwich.

The marginal illustrations are a feast of comedy, bawdiness, even obscenity, sitting alongside the sacred and and solemn text and main images. Recognisably human figures share space with monstrous and impossible grotesques, and with a procession of animals engaged in human activities.


Cello bagged with red silk hanging ribbon.
