Context

The Lindisfarne Gospels is an illuminated Latin manuscript of the gospels, generally regarded as the finest example of Northumbria's unique style of religious art, a style that combined Anglo-Saxon and Celtic themes (what is now called Hiberno-Saxon art). It is presumed to be the work of a monk named Eadfrith, who became Bishop of Lindisfarne in 698. The manuscript is now in the British Library.
