The Lindisfarne Gospels and the Early Medieval World

Full Product Description

The Lindisfarne Gospels, written and illuminated in the northeast of England at the beginning of the 8th century, is one of the outstanding masterpieces of early medieval European book painting. This accessible and visually inspiring book brings together a range of historical, artistic, archaeological, spiritual and theological perspectives to explore and celebrate a major world treasure.

It is lavishly illustrated with full-page colour illustrations of the major pages of the Lindisfarne Gospels, of other related treasures, places and archaeological sites. It is written in a style that is accessible to the informed general public, students and academic researchers, and incorporates exciting new finds such as the Prittlewell burial and the Staffordshire Hoard.
