This week's Annunciation is within an Initial D (Dixit dominus—"The Lord said to my Lord, sit at my right hand") from Psalm 1110, an important messianic Psalm that Jesus himself singled out to indicate his divine Sonship.

The page is from a "Glossed Psalter" (Psalter with embedded notes) in the Parker Library of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.

This week's Annunciation is an engraving by Crispijn de Passe (1564 - 1637) from the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It features the Latin text of the first lines of Mary's Magnificat ("My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior....")
