This Gospel Book is believed to come from the Abbey of Reichenau, on Lake Constance, Germany in the mid 11th century and is written in Latin. The decoration of the manuscript places it in the so-called Luithar school of Reichenau. Gold uncials, a distinct mark of Reichenau manufacture, begin each paragraph as well as the introductory words of each chapter.

An example of Ottonian book illumination, the work includes full-page miniatures of Saints Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and of the Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to each of the four Evangelists. The original print was made with cream parchment over pasteboard, and inscribed on the spine with EVANGELIAIRE Xe SIECLE.

It is currently located at Walters Art Museum.

Reproduction Details:

The hardcover books are made with wood and either cowhide or soft lamb skin. The binding is a combination of modern and old world techniques. We perfect bind the book block first, then the book is hand sewn (oversewn style) into 20 page signatures and then multiple layers of mull cloth are applied. Drying in between each layer. The end result is a binding that will last generations to come.
