The Lindisfarne Gospels

The British Library is putting its treasury of medieval manuscripts online, starting with the most famous. To celebrate, here are some pages and details from the Lindisfarne Gospels. This masterpiece of Anglo-Saxon art was begun, our sources say, in 698 by Eadfrith, bishop of Lindisfarne (d. 721?). The text has Old English glosses added by Aldred, provost of Chester-le-Street (fl. c. 970). The decoration was done sometime in between by more than one person, possibly over a period of decades.
