Turning the Pages™

You can 'turn the pages' of the Lindisfarne Gospels now! We have selected 40 of the most beautiful pages from the manuscript.

Turning the Pages™ brings together great works of Christian art such as the Sherborne Missal, Luttrell Psalter and Sforza Hours, in addition to the Lindisfarne Gospels. Other religious texts such as the Diamond Sutra (Buddhism), Sultan Baybars’ Qur’an (Islam), and the Golden Haggadah (Judaism) can also be examined in close detail.

There are scientific works too: Leonardo da Vinci’s Notebook, Elizabeth Blackwell’s Herbal and Andreas Vesalius’ De Humani Corporis Fabrica, a rare sixteenth-century treatise on anatomy.

All ten treasures are celebrated for their superb illustrations.
