Psalterium Quadruplex: Psalms and Odes. | Leroquais (1940-1941: 254) dates the manuscript between 1145 and 1153. It consists of four columns: the first three columns contain the so-called Gallicanum, Romanum and Hebraicum by Jerome and the fourth one transmits the Graecum, which is a Greek version of the Psalms written in Latin script. According to Delisle, the manuscript is an apograph of the Psalterium Quadruplex from Tournai. Both manuscripts are related to the famous Bamberg Psalter, see Rahlfs (1907: 24).Text-type: Ga, L.
