Ivrea, Biblioteca capitolare, MS 85 Psalterium Warmundi
- distinct manuscript
- Continental manuscripts
Psalter of bishop Warmund of Ivrea, written in c.1000 (cf. MS 86, Warmund’s Sacramentary). While most often cited in the literature for its miniatures reminiscent of Ottonian art and the connection to Warmund, it may be known to Celticists for the 11th-century additions of hymns in honour of Irish saints, Patrick, Brigit, Kilian and Brendan.
On f. 24, Liber psalmorum ex hebraico caractere et sermone in latinum eloquium a beato Geronimo presbitero editus.

Bishop of Ivrea, probably consecrated in 966 and known for his conflicts with Arduin, margrave of Ivrea. He is associated with the production of several manuscripts, including an illuminated psalter (Ivrea, Biblioteca capitolare, MS 85) and sacramentary (MS 86).
See more Colophon in verse (f. 24v): Psalterii librum millena fruge refertum / uirgo dei genitrix, donum tu sume, fidelis / dat tibi Warmundus presul pro munere munus / et sibi post mortem uitam concede perhennem..
At least one hand of the late 11th century is thought to have been responsible for the addition of hymns on f. 17, on ff. 21-23 and at the end of the MS.(1)n. 1 Bethmann states that “Am Ende folgen von anderer, späterer Hand mehrere Hymnen, und ziemlich im Anfange hat eine Hand s. XI folgende Gedichte auf leere Stellen geschrieben”, and he goes on the name the hymns for Patrick, Kilian and Brendan, and the long poem beg. Cum secus ora vadi placeat mihi ludere Padi. A terminus post quem is provided by a reference in the long poem beg. Cum secus ora vadi placeat mihi ludere Padi to Henry IV’s defeat in 1075 in the Saxon rebellion. The possibiity that the hand can be associated with the presumable author of this poem, one Wido (Vuido) whose name appears on f. 22r, cannot be proven.
Links to texts use a standardised title for the catalogue and so may or may not reflect what is in the manuscript itself, hence the square brackets. Their appearance comes in three basic varieties, which are signalled through colour coding and the use of icons, , and :
- - If a catalogue entry is both available and accessible, a direct link will be made. Such links are blue-ish green and marked by a bookmark icon.
- - When a catalogue entry does not exist yet, a desert brown link with a different icon will take you to a page on which relevant information is aggregated, such as relevant publications and other manuscript witnesses if available.
- - When a text has been ‘captured’, that is, a catalogue entry exists but is still awaiting publication, the same behaviour applies and a crossed eye icon is added.
The above method of differentiating between links has not been applied yet to texts or citations from texts which are included in the context of other texts, commonly verses.
While it is not a reality yet, CODECS seeks consistency in formatting references to locations of texts and other items of interest in manuscripts. Our preferences may be best explained with some examples:
- f. 23ra.34: meaning folio 23 recto, first column, line 34
- f. 96vb.m: meaning folio 96, verso, second column, middle of the page (s = top, m = middle, i = bottom)
- Note that marg. = marginalia, while m = middle.
- p. 67b.23: meaning page 67, second column, line 23
