The Ormesby Psalter is perhaps most yet enigmatic of the great Gothic Psalters produces in England in the fourteenth century. Executed in a series of distinct campaigns from the late thirteenth to the mid fourteenth century. The final result was the work of four or five scribes and up to seven illuminators and its pages show a panorama of stylistic development. Unravelling its complexities has sometimes been thought to hold the key to understanding the ‘East Anglian School’, a group of large, luxury manuscripts connected with Norwich Cathedral and Norfolk churches and patrons. Freddie Law-Turner’s  recent book casts an entirely new light on its history, clarifying and dating the successive phases of production and associating the main work on the manuscript for the first time with the patronage of John de Warenne, Earl of Surrey  and his ward, Richard Foliot.
