The Lindisfarne Gospels is one of the most magnificent manuscripts of the early Middle Ages and was written and decorated around 700. To celebrate the opening of the Lindisfarne Gospels Durham exhibition we have now made the manuscript available as eBook Treasures facsimile editions. A highlights version is available as well as the complete manuscript and both contain commentary and audio on selected pages. The highlights version is free of charge from 1st July for 2 weeks (and £1.99 thereafter), and the complete version of over 500 pages is available for £3.49.
