[Recto] [I]clinavit d[ominus] ... / D[ilexi quoniam exaudiet] ... /[verso] ... [parv]ulos dominus [humiliatus sum et li]beravit me [convertere anim]a mea in r[equiem tuam quia dominus] benefecit ... (Psalm 114:6)
Title devised by cataloger.
Origin: Written in Italy in the fifteenth century, probably a Ferial Psalter for Franciscan use. "Inclinavit dominus" is the opening antiphon for Feria 2 (Monday); its incipit here is followed, as is typical, by Psalm 114. It seems likely, therefore, that this miniature of St. Francis in the letter [D] stood at the beginning of the Psalm and that the manuscript from which it was cut was a Ferial Psalter for Franciscan use.
