Chapter Summary

This appendix presents three plates of London St. Paul's Cathedral Library, MS 2. Plate 1 shows Herbert's discussion of the gender of 'earth' and 'world' in Hebrew in Psalm 23 (24) v.1-2. He attributes this exegesis to 'litterator meus' (penultimate line) which is explained in the margin as 'Salomon' and is possibly a reference to Rashi. Plate 2 contains one of Herbert's references to Menahem ben Saruq's Mahberet, which is translated as 'addicio'. Plate 3 deals with psalm, which contains an anonymous reference to Midrash Tanhuma on Genesis 1, which is referred to in a marginal gloss as Gamaliel.

Keywords: Genesis 1; Hebrew; Herbert; psalm; St. Paul's Cathedral
