Bible stories in a medieval English Psalter: educating Margaret de Lacy, Lady of Meath

Nigel Morgan, Honorary Professor at Corpus Christi College Cambridge, is one of the world’s leading historians of medieval art. His lecture focuses on a richly illustrated English Psalter (called today the Munich Golden Psalter) which will be published in facsimile later in 2011. Professor Morgan has written the commentary for this facsimile. He will discuss the educational impact of the Psalter’s illustrations, in the light of its probable owner, Margaret de Lacy, Lady of Meath.
