Turning Pages of the Lindisfarne Gospels

by Sister Hilda Kleiman, OSB

In addition to the Book of Kells, our discussion of illuminated manuscripts from the early Middle Age in History of Art at Mount Angel Seminary includes the Lindisfarne Gospels, which is located in the British Library.

The site for the British Library includes Turning the Pages, a feature that provides a variety of virtual books and manuscripts, thus allowing us to see each page of the Lindisfarne Gospels in detail.
