Lindisfarne Gospels: Initial page to St John’s Gospel. This is the opening page of the text of St John’s gospel, from the Lindisfarne Gospels which was made around 698AD at the Abbey of Lindisfarne. The small lines of text you can see under the decorated words are a translation into Anglo-Saxon that was added in the tenth century.
