Psalm 074 (Vulg., 073).
Christ-Logos, cross-nimbed, raising right hand in blessing, holding roll in left hand, sits on globe. He is flanked by two nude personifications of Day and Night, each within mandorla. Two round objects (both have been cropped) appear above mandorlas, possibly representing sun and moon.
Figures appear within full-page initial V decorated with foliate and interlace ornament outlined in red on gold ground.
