The Lindisfarne Gospels
The Lindisfarne Gospels, a manuscript produced in the Northumbrian island monastery of Lindisfarne at the end of the seventh century, in honour of Saint Cuthbert, is one of the world's masterpieces of book painting. It is a precious relic of early Christianity in England, and one of the nation's greatest treasures. This is the first book to make the chief glories of the Lindisfarne Gospels accessible to a wide public. All the important illuminated pages are reproduced in colour from a new and accurate set of photographs.
