Lindisfarne Gospels - List of Readings from St John f. 208
Copyright © The British Library Board
This is one of the very few pages on which Eadfrith's original
7th century script can be admired almost entirely free of the gloss
added by Aldred in the 10th century. Clear and black, very assured
and regular in form, this script, designed for formal use, is known
technically as insular majuscule. The page gives details of particular
passages in St John which are to be read on specific feast days.
