The article presents a possible interpretation spectrum of the miniatures, especially that of the fiddler (viellator), that appear on folio 18r of the Florian Psalter, containing the text of Psalm 14(13) (Dixit insipiens...). The methodology applied involves recognizing the roots of cultural sources of the motif. In the case of the fiddler miniature, these are i.a. changes in medieval musical culture, its conceptualization by the theologians of the time, representations of fiddlers in book illuminations, as well as iconographic and exegetical tradition of Psalm 14(13). In the context of the debate about the iconography of this work the article attempts to interpret it based on considering possible meanings of the visual material in relation to the text it accompanies.
