Pseudo-Jerome (perhaps Augustine) Commentary on the Psalms . Italy. C12th, but before-1180
c.350mm x 260mm Single leaf on vellum. 31 lines in a Carolingian script with red initials. The lack of biting curves in facing letters with a curved stroke in lower register dates this leaf to before 1180.
Script to one side only. Repairs, recovered from a binding. Generally good.
The text appears to be from the Commentary 59 by Augustine “futura ira: per quod non solum peccatores, sed etiam dilecti tui liberantur. Salvum fac dextera tua. Christo tuo, qui est salus nostra.”
The term “Pseudo-Jerome” refers to authors who have been misidentified as Saint Jerome or who have claimed authorship in a pseudepigraphic manner. In this context, the text was originally attributed to Jerome but is, in fact, by Augustine.
