Description

Created some time between AD715 and 720 at the monastery of Lindisfarne, the Lindisfarne Gospels is one of the most beautiful creations of the Insualr art tradition of Anglo-Saxon England. Accompanying an exhibition held at the British Library in 2003, this guide outlines the history and production of the Gospels and discusses their religious context, the labyrinthine web of words and images, production of the manuscripts and their significance to those who made them and to the kingdom of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria as a whole.
