Society Zoom Talk – Presidents Lecture: The Ramsey Psalter, David Cozens

October 13, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Zoom Meeting Room
David Smith

Our President, David Cozens will give a talk on the Ramsey Psalter. The talk will be given using Zoom as our normal venue the Methodist Church is unavailable because of building work in the carpark area.

The Psalter of Oswold, also know as the Ramsey Psalter is said to be one of the finest examples of Gothic manuscripts in the United Kingdom. The codex, written in the last quarter of the 13th Century features 40 superbly created illustrations and 12 highly detailed figural initials. The Psalter was possibly produced by the monks in Winchester for Ramsey Abbey.

David will talk to us about the Psalter and will illustrate his talk with some of the figural initials and highly decorative illustrations.

The talk is free to all members and the link details will be sent out via email to all members. Non members are welcome to join the talk, for access details please email your request to
