Written and illuminated in honor of God and St. Cuthburt, the Lindisfarne Gospels illuminated manuscript remains one of Britain's greatest artistic and religious treasures. This particular design, "St. Matthew's Gospel" is based on the form of a cross. A single artist-scribe, Eadfrith (who later became the Bishop of Lindisfarne) was responsible for both the script and the stunning decoration throughout these Gospels. The volume is painted in a large and subtle range of pigments made from a selection of local plants and minerals, the work of someone attuned to the environment. The beautiful and artistic cross that adorned the Gospel of Matthew in this ancient illuminated manuscript has now been reproduced in full color and detail as a silkscreen print for home display as a beautiful and unique table overlay or wall hanging. The St. Matthew's Gospel Silkscreen Print is a lovely way to display early English Christian art in your home. This can also be incorporated into your wardrobe as a stylish scarf!
