Cypriot limestone heads from statues of worshipers erected in the Temple of Apollo at Idalion, Cyprus. Both wear wreaths of laurel and ivy and date to the 3rd Century BC. The style derives from Ptolemaic prototypes, as Cyprus was part of the Ptolemaic kingdom during this time. The British Museum, London. Photo Credit: Clio Ancient Art and Antiquities

A Book fit for an Emperor

Psalterium Caroli Calvi; The Psalter of Charles the Bald

Defined as one of the most important examples of Carolingian art of gold-and-silversmith’s artistry and craftsmanship, the Psalter of Charles the Bald combines elegant copy, luxurious paintings and an exceptional binding. Liuthard, an artist who worked in Palace school around 869-870, organized the production of this manuscript, especially the text which is written in gold ink, using uncial script for the psalms and Caroline minuscule for liturgical texts, with the incipits on purple bands and painted initials.

This manuscript is simply sensational. This post gives you an overview of the masterpiece. Later we are going to zoom in into the details in order to see how complex this manuscript truly is.

Stay tuned.
