Exclusive viewing of the Lindisfarne Gospels, 9th July, Palace Green, Durham.
Be part of an enlightening journey as the Lindisfarne Gospels go on show this summer.
The Lindisfarne Gospels book is one of the greatest landmarks of human cultural achievement. Created by the community of St Cuthbert on Lindisfarne, it is one of the best examples of creativity and craftsmanship from medieval times. On show in Durham University's Palace Green Library, completely redesigned and refurbished for this event, will be fabulous artefacts wrought from precious metals and minerals including gold, amber and silver and stone sculpture alongside medieval manuscripts including the St Cuthbert Gospel and the Durham Gospels. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the gospel book itself, written in honour of St Cuthbert and displayed alongside his treasures.
