The Stuttgart Psalter is a richly illuminated manuscript, written between 820-830 in the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. It is considered one of the most significant of the Carolingian period. Written in Carolingian minuscule, it contains 316 images illustrating the Book of Psalms according to the Gallican Rite. The Stuttgart Psalter is of great interest to Carolingian historians because of the detail and variety of the contemporary objects it portraying a.o. battles and militaria. The Carolingian dynasty was a Frankish noble family with origins in the Arnulfing and Pippinid clans of the 7th century AD. The name "Carolingian" derives from the Latinised name of Charles Martel: Carolus. It is archived since the late 18th century at the Württembergische Landesbibliothek in Stuttgart.
