The Luttrell Psalter

The Luttrell Psalter was a Medieval religious book commissioned by Sir Geoffrey Luttrell in the 1300’s. It contains a calendar, psalms and a Mass. It contains numerous drawings of daily life in Medieval times and Bible stories. It’s well known for those drawings and they are of importance to historians by depicting daily life. Luttrell wanted the Psalter commissioned either because he felt he was going to die and wanted it to be recited after his death, or to commemorate his son’s marriage to the Sutton family. Interestingly, some people made a live action video depicting scenes from the Luttrell Psalter!
