"Bosworth Psalter," "Canterbury Hymnal" (ff. 105r-128r)
[Ker 129, Gneuss 291]

HISTORY: The psalter proper (ff. 4r--95r), Ps. 151 (f. 95v), canticles (ff. 96r--104r), hymns (ff. 105r--128r), and monastic canticles (ff. 129r--135r) were written in the second half of the 10c, the calendar (ff. 2r--3r), litany
(f. 104rv), texts and prayers of the Mass (ff. 135v-139v) somewhat later (10/11c); a 12c hand has added in two columns on f. 64r/5-24 a series of incipits and rubrics to intercessory prayers and the psalm verses to be used with them. The extensive Latin commentary (see below) was added in the 12c. Gasquet and Bishop (1908) demonstrate that the calendar ultimately derives from a Glastonbury exemplar, but adapted for Canter­bury use, specifically, as Korhammer (1973) shows, Christ Church. Be­longed in the 16c to Archbishop Thomas Cramner (f. 2r Thomas Can­ tuarien<sis>>, Henry Fitz-Alan (the earl of Arundel), and Lord Lumley, his son-in-law (see f. 2r for signatures). After Lord Lumley's death in 1609, the manuscript was purchased as part of a collection by James I, but was later (under unclear circumstances) made part of the collection of 0. Turville-Petre of Bosworth Hall before 1789, and purchased from the Turville-Petre family in 1907 (see Ker Cat.; Gasquet and Bishop 1908: 3-4).

CODICOLOGICAL DESCRIPTION: Leaf size 390 x 265 mm.; writing grid 310 x 185 mm. Psalter proper ruled for twenty-five lines. Ruled for interlinear and marginal glosses as needed. Prickings visible in outer margins. Bound in oak boards secured by five leather hinges that tuck beneath a red leather spine. The inside cover bears a bookplate with the name "F. Fortescue Turvile." Two modern paper leaves precede f. 1, the first with the notation "Purchased of 0. Turville-Petre Esq. 13 July, 1907," and including two small sheets pasted in containing a list of bibliographical items relevant to the codex. The second paper leaf bears a paste-in with the following:

5. A large Ms bound in oak boards. The first three folios from another Ms exquisitely written. On the 2nd folio are the names Thomas Cantu­ ariefl and at the foot Arundel and Lumley. The body of the Ms is a Psalter with interlinear directions &c. inserted at a later date than the original Ms which is early. This Ms probably came from the library of the Archbishop of Canterbury and was given by him to the Earl of Arundel who gave it to his son in law Lord Lumley.
F. 1r shows modern repairs to the upper right of the leaf. F. 1v,containing computistical notes on the calendar, shows two registers, the upper in red, green, blue, and brown inks; the bottom register was never en­ tered, although it is framed. Ff. 1 and 2-3 were prepared as a unit, as ink and ruling show. Natural holes are seen in ff. 6,18,27,54,63,84, 89, 92, 93, 97, 100, 111, 114, 117. A wormhole shows on f. 120 and continues to the end of the manuscript,as does a second on f. 129,and others on f. 130 and following. A brown smudge occurs on f. 87r and a lighter one at the bottom right off. 135v. F. 128v shows a number of diagonal slashes made in the leaf through the picture of Christ, with a few small modern patches used to strengthen the leaf Similar slashes occur on f. 131v. The word "Alleluia" is incised in large letters in dry­ point in the bottom margin off. 110v,causing an imprint on f. 109v. F. 135v (the beginning of the prayers and texts for the Mass) shows two large initials, the first a P drawn in lead retraced in brown ink; the second, a T, remains unfinished, having been marked out heavily in lead. On f. 98v occur two drypoint drawings in the left margin of two hands; f. 85v shows an initial letter "B" in drypoint to the left of"Beati." Two modern paper leaves are bound at the end of the manuscript, the first giving foliation and examination date of1907,the second bearing a note that ff. 32-33 were treated with ethanol peroxide in 1984.
Full Latin commentary is added for Pss. 1-39 (ff. 4r-26r) and Pss. 71-82 (ff. 44r-53r); titular Latin commentary is added for psalms 40-50 (ff. 26v-32r). Psalm titles and numbers are omitted from Pss. 72-118, 131-138,and 144-151. Ps. 118 shows rubricated divisions at v. 161 (f. 83r) and v. 169 (f. 83v). Ps. 119 is unnumbered but bears a title. Both titles and numbers begin again with Psalm 120 (f. 83v). Until f. Slv (Ps. 79), all initial letters are in green ink, after which blue and red initials generally alternate (blue: Pss. 80,85,103,105,108,110,112,114,116, 118, 121, 123, 125, 127, 129,132,134, 136, 138, 140, 145, 147,148, 150; red: Pss. 104, 106, 107,111,113, 115, 117, 119, 120, 122, 124, 126,128,131,133,135,137,139,141,142,143,146,149,151). Bene­dictine divisions within the psalter are indicated by display lines at Pss. 20, 26, 32, 38, 45, 59, 68, 73, 85, 95, 101, 105; expected divisions at Pss. 52 and 79 are wanting. Divisions within the psalms are indicated in either red or blue or in one instance green by "Diuisio sancti benedicti abbatis" (f 24r), "Diuisio benedicti" (f. 42r), "Diuisio institutionis benedicti" (ff. 41r, 92r), "Diusio beati benedicti" (f. lO0r), etc. (on Benedictine psalm-divisions, see Bishop and Gasquet 1907: 10, Sisam and Sisam 1959: 4). The psalms show frequent alterations to the Gallican version, usually indicated by underlining of the particular portion oftext with the altered text added (typically) above, often embedded in the Latin commentary and apparently added after the commentary.
The OE gloss is found at Pss. 40.5, 50.1-5 (erased) and 6-21, 53.3-9, 63, 66, 68, 69, 70, 85, 101, 118-133, 139.2 and 9, 140.1-4, 142. For
