The Lindisfarne Gospels, a manuscript produced in the Northumbrian island monastery of Lindisfarne at the end of the seventh century in honour of Saint Cuthbert, is one of the world's foremost masterpieces of book painting.
It is a precious relic of early Christianity in England, and one of the nation's greatest treasures.
This is the first ever book to make the glories of the Lindisfarne Gospels accessible to a wide public.
All the essential illuminated pages are reproduced impeccably in colour from an entirely new and accurate set of photographs.
