Hebrew Illuminated Manuscripts
  Bologna Psalm Fragment, Germany, 13th c.

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Unknown,

The initial word אשרי (blessed) which begins the text of Psalms is written in large square Ashkenazi display script in dark brown ink in the lower part of a rich micrographic panel, which occupies half the page. The panel is framed with a text border. The micrographic decoration forms two confronting rampant lions with elaborate foliate tails and a fleur-de-lys in between them. The lower margins of the page is decorated with masoretic micrography of a running fleur-de-lys interlace over arched half-palmettes while in the upper margins are 3 pairs of confronting birds in microgaphic masorah. The masorah magna, is also written vertically on either side of the right and left margins of the page creating a frame to the entire page.
