Anton Baumstark discusses the Psalter illustrations he found in a manuscript owned by the Greek Patriarch of Jerusalem. Previous to the publication of this article, the number of Psalter illustrations related to the Syriac tradition was quite limited, and they were generally split into two categories. As Baumstark notes in his discussion, the illustrations found in this manuscript provide a broader view of Syriac Psalter illustrations and challenge this simple categorization. Baumstark provides a brief discussion of each of the thirty illustrations, and then discusses the similarities and differences in detail. The article also includes miniature images of four of the illustrations.
