The oldest book in Scotland is going on public display for the first time in its history.
The Celtic Psalter dates from the 11th Century and contains hand-written psalms in Latin, with Celtic and Pictish illustrations.
It has been kept under lock and key at the University of Edinburgh and has been available to only a few scholars.
But for the next three months the public will have the chance to view the book at the university's newly refurbished library.
Also on display is the finest surviving copy of Scotland's first substantial printed book, the Aberdeen Breviary which dates back to 1509.
There is also a copy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet published during the playwright's lifetime.
The exhibition opens on Friday and lasts until 14th March.
