Lindisfarne Gospels - Gospel of St Luke f. 143v

Virtual books: images only - Lindisfarne Gospels: Gospel of St Luke  f. 143v
Copyright © The British Library Board

This is an example of a typical text page from the Gospel of St Luke. Aldred's 10th century gloss, a word for word translation of the Latin, is added between the lines. Note the beauty and regularity of Eadfrith's script.

  < Pages 21 and 22 (of 32)
