MINIATURE PSALTER WITH REPRODUCTIONS FROM CODEX BARBERINI GRECO 372. Published 1994 by Casa editrice San Paolo, Italy. First Edition, Gild embossed leather hardcover in box, 3 sided gilt-edging, 287 pages, 7 x 10 cm. This beautiful miniature psalter is not a facsimile per se, in that the typesetting for the text of the psalter is modern and in the Italian language. However it reproduces the miniatures from the Codex Barberini Greco 372, a Byzantine Psalter produced probably in the monastery at Studion around 1000.
The original miniature codex was owned by Prince Eugenio Scarlatti, then by Cardinal Francesco Boncompagni and later by the Barberini family, until it finally reached the Vatican Apostolic Library where it is held to this day under the title of Barberini Greco 372.
