This remarkable and beautiful book, made in north east England in the early 8th century, is an important landmark of art, calligraphy, language and biblical transmission. Standing at the transition from late Antiquity to the early Middle Ages, it reflects the Anglo-Saxon and Celtic societies of the day and their aspirations. This talk will explore what the book reveals of how and why it was made.
