The Utrecht Psalter gets its name from the fact that it has been housed in Utrecht University Library since 1716. There is still some doubt about when and where it was made. However, that it dates back to the second quarter of the ninth century and that it was made in Reims or in the nearby monastery of Hautvilliers is by now accepted by most experts. The Utrecht Psalter is regarded as the masterpiece of the so-called Reims school of manuscript illumination which also dates back to this period.
