96 p 'The Lindisfarne Gospels, a manuscript produced in the Northumbrian island monastery of Lindisfarne at the end of the seventh century, is one of the world's great masterpieces of book painting. More than any other work of art it sums up the cultural achievement of what is often described as the Golden Age of Northumbria. It is a precious relic of early Christianity in England, and one of the nation's greatest treasures. Written and illuminated in the late seventh century by the monk Eadfrith (later the Bishop of Lindisfarne).
