The Pabenham-Clifford Hours

Gradual Psalms

Texts and Images

The 15 Gradual Psalms (Psalms 119-133) were recited as prayers of spiritual ascent. This section might have opened with a large historiated initial with a full border, but the leaf containing it is missing. Part of Psalm 131, and Psalms 132-133 are all that have been preserved. Remaining text divisions are marked by ornamental initials.
