The Hymnbook
Dedication I




To him, who in recognition of his highest sanctity

has been raised aloft with the dignity of the highest priesthood,

my most beloved lord LIUTWARD,

most worthy successor of the incomparable

Eusebius, Bishop of Vercelli,

Abbot of the Monastery of the most saintly Columban,

Guardian of the Priory of his most gentle disciple Gall,

and Archchaplain to the most glorious Emperor Charles,


most humble of those who wear the habit of Saint Gall

[dedicates this book].
