Gospels of Luke and John, 875 AD

199.99

Date: 879-925

Author:  Multiple scribes

 

Language: Latin

 

This manuscript containing the gospels of Luke and John originally formed a whole with another gospel book fragment now preserved in Weimar. The Weimar manuscript contains prologues, canon tables, the gospels of Matthew and Mark, and, at the end, the argumentum (introduction) andbreviarium (summary) to Luke. Each gospel begins with a portrait of the evangelist and a full-page initial. The manuscript, of high quality, is clearly the work of an important scriptorium influenced by that at Saint Gallen; it may have been written at Mainz, Germany.

The optional Gold Illumination is done with 24k gold leaf. This is a time consuming process so an extra week will be needed to finish the book.
