This fascinating book looks at the background and history of the Lindisfarne Gospels, a breathtaking artwork and symbol of Christian faith. Highly illustrated and very readable, the book is divided into short sections, each examining an aspect of the Anglo-Saxon world, the heritage of the people who lived and ruled at this time, and how and why this great book was created.

There is a complete list of all artefacts and manuscripts which were in this special exhibition and a suggested list of further reading. The book is an ideal starting point for information about this unique national treasure, on free permanent public display in the British Library exhibition galleries.
