Lindisfarne Gospels
Lindisfarne Gospels
The Lindisfarne Gospels (about 698-721) are illuminated books produced by monks who belonged to a monastery established on Holy Island, off the coast of Northumberland, England by Saint Aidan.

The gospels are noted for their pages decorated with complex interlacing designs intertwined with fantastic creatures. The initial letters of each gospel were especially embellished. In the 10th century an Old English translation of the Gospels was made inserted between the lines of the Latin text. This was the first translation of the Gospels into the English language.

The page shown, of the Gospel According to Saint Matthew, begins 'Liber generationis', Latin for 'The book of the generation'.
