Talk: Eadfrith: the scribe of the Lindisfarne Gospels

Tuesday 23 August, 2-3pm
Free
Pre-booking recommended

The Lindisfarne Gospels appear to be the work of one artist scribe, Eadfrith, the abbot and head of the community. In this talk Ewan Clayton looks at the nature of the extraordinary task he took on, what he thought he was doing, what makes the book special and what it tells us about the man and the community he led.

This talk is provided by the University of Sunderland as part of the public programme for the Art & Design Degree Show, Emerge which runs until 31 August 2022.
