The St. Albans psalter : painting and prayer in medieval England by Kristen M Collins( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The St. Albans Psalter is one of the most important, famous, and puzzling books produced in twelfth-century England. It was probably created between 1120 and 1140 at St. Albans Abbey, located on the site where Alban, England's first saint, was martyred. The manuscript's powerfully drawn figures and saturated colors are distinct from those in previous Anglo-Saxon painting and signal the arrival of the Romanesque style of illumination in England. Although most twelfth-century prayer books were not illustrated, the St. Albans Psalter includes more than 40 fullpage illuminations and over 200 historiated initials. Decorated with gold and precious colors, the psalter offers a display unparalleled by any other English manuscript to survive from the period. In 2007 the St. Albans Psalter was removed from its binding and in 2012 the disbound leaves traveled to the J. Paul Getty Museum.0Exhibition: J.

500 years : treasures from the library of Corpus Christi College, Oxford by Peter Kidd( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From medieval 12th-century Ireland to 16th-century Renaissance France; from 13th- and 14th-century England to 15th-century Italy ... The breadth of history captured within these manuscripts is simply astounding. Corpus Christi College, Oxford, was founded 500 years ago, in 1517. To mark its fifth centennial anniversary, this catalogue provides a varied selection of some of the greatest treasures in the College Library. Unlike Oxford's older colleges, Corpus Christi was founded with Renaissance ideals: it would promote the new learning current in Europe, and would equip its students to read Hebrew and Greek - the original languages of the Bible - as well as Latin. To this end the College's Founder and its first President began to fill the Library with an astonishing collection of illuminated manuscripts and early printed books in these three languages. Most of the books included date from the 12th to the 16th centuries, of which a significant proportion represent the Bible in a variety of different translations and versions. Others are later, including unique works that represent scientific discoveries made by astronomers including Galileo and Sir Isaac Newton.00Exhibition: Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington D.C., USA (04.02.-30.04.2017)

Der Albani-Psalter = The St. Alban's psalter = El salterio San Albans by Catholic Church( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The manuscript which was created in St Albans and perfected as one of the most important objects of English cultural heritage, epitomizes 400 years of church history and faith in the Abbey, tells us of the reformation in England, the tradition of St. Albans Cathedral and its bishops. These are followed by nearly 400 years in the Diocese of Hildesheim, where the manuscript endured the changing fortunes of the bishopric, then the secularisation of 1803 during which time it was passed on to the Benedictine brothers at the Monastery of St. Godehard."--Foreword (Commentary, p.10)
Powerfully simple meetings : your guide to fewer, faster more focused business meetings by Peter Kidd( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors believe that the reason for these failed attempts at improving meeting productivity is that they have focused on alleviating the symptoms of bad meetings rather than the underlying root causes. If you have ever had a severe bronchial infection you understand that taking cough medicine might relieve some of the coughing but it is not going to cure the underlying infection. The same holds true for meetings. To improve the productivity of meetings you need a comprehensive end-to-end method that solves the fundamental challenges with meetings. We developed a system Powerfully Simple Meetings (PSM) that can immediately improve the end-to-end business meeting process in your organization.[Publisher Abstract]
