Lindisfarne Gospels - St John f. 209v

Virtual books: images only - Lindisfarne Gospels: St John  f. 209v
Copyright © The British Library Board

Of the four evangelists, only St John is shown facing out of the book, directing his gaze at the reader. He is not writing but appears to be expounding the contents of his scroll. He is accompanied by his traditional symbol, the eagle.
