The Lindisfarne Gospels: A Living Manuscript

  • Margaret Walker The University of Edinburgh


This article questions how current and previous owners have marked the Lindisfarne Gospels, created 1,300 years ago. Their edits, which would be frowned upon today, are useful for historians to understand how the Gospels have been valued by previous owners and thus why they are so treasured today.
