It would have taken calf skins to produce this book. The text was written in Latin and beautifully illustrated, bound in leather and studded with precious jewels and metals. In the 10th Century an English translation was added between the lines and it is the earliest surviving English translation of the gospels. The illustrations are amazing. The colours are still vibrant despite the passage of time. This is the page that was on display when I visited the exhibition, it's the page which begins St Mark's Gospel. Each gospel has an illustration of the saint and then a carpet page follows it.
This is the carpet page for St Matthew's Gospel. The detail is absolutely wonderful. Source - Wiki Commons. You can see more here on the British Library's website. However this doesn't give you any perception of the beauty and the amazing detail of this manuscript or how on earth one man produced it in such difficult conditions. No central heating, no electricity, and no modern equipment.
The Gospels survived in almost perfect condition despite Viking raids, the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry V, wars and the ravages of time. The book is now kept in the British Library in London and only goes out for exhibition every seven years for a maximum of three months. I thoroughly enjoyed the exhibition, seeing the wonderful collection of artefacts brought from a wide range of sources telling the amazing story of people's faith, creativity and courage. Sadly now the exhibition has ended, the book has travelled back to the British Library in London where it is kept on display for the world's visitors to view.
Religious books don't belong in museums, they belong in places of worship like this. If you ever get the chance to visit Durham Cathedral, take it! It is often described as the greatest example of Romanesque architecture in Europe however t he US author Bill Bryson described it as "The best cathedral on planet earth" and I agree with him!
