The Life Of St. Augustine, In A Collection Of The Lives Of English And Augustinian Saints

Medium: Ink and pigments on vellum

Date: 1190

Shelfmark: Additional MS 35110

Item number: f.9v

Genre: Illuminated manuscript

To judge by the texts included (such as lives and miracles of Sts. Augustine, Cuthbert, Columba, Oswald, Aidan), and its early provenance, this book was probably written for a Augustinian house in Northumbria. The start of the prologue to the Life of St. Augustine has a large green initial 'I', decorated at the top with a human head in profile.
