This Psalter is a collection of the 150 Psalms made for Hildegard, the wife of Charlemagne. The main part of the handwriting comes from the scribe Dagulf, so the codex is sometimes referred to as the Dagulf Psalter. Dagulf signed the book in a dedication poem to Charlemagne. The work covers two decisive phases of the Carolingian School of painting. The section carried out between 783 and 789 may be identified as having been made in Worms and Metz, whereas the completion of the codex undoubtedly took place in Aachen between 790 and 795. The facsimile edition is limited to 700 copies and comes with a commentary volume containing 100 pages to guide you through the world of Charlemagne and provide a comprehensive explanation of the book's lavish decoration .
