«De David le prophecie» (and the Old French Eructavit poem) as a Synecdoche of the Psalter in the manuscript British Library, Additional 15606

Vladimir Agrigoroaei


ABSTRACT: The scribe of manuscript London, British Library, Additional 15606 (dating back to the early 14th century) made an interesting error, leading to the substitution of a bifolio in a quire of the codex and suggesting that the French poem Eructavit, inspired by the commentary of a psalm, could stand in for a symbolic representation of the psalter.
