New publication: ‘The Vespasian Psalter’, in The Encyclopedia of Medieval Literature in Britain

I have a new publication out!  The Encyclopedia of Medieval Literature in Britain, edited by Sian Echard and Robert Rouse, and published by Wiley Blackwell in August 2017, features my 500-word entry on the Vespasian Psalter (London, British Library Cotton MS Vespasian A. i) – and a lot of other interesting things besides.
