The Introduction tof Manuscript Culture to Anglo-Saxon England
In this illustrated lecture, Professor Michelle Brown, will discuss the introduction of manuscript culture to Anglo-Saxon England and the complex web of peoples, practices and beliefs that lay behind it. The influence of Germanic metalwork (such as the Sutton Hoo finds), Celtic Art and thought, ancient Romano-British trading contacts with the Mediterranean and the Middle East all find their place in the pages of books such as the Book of Durrow, the Lindisfarne Gospels, the Codex Amiatinus, the Vespasian Psalter and the Book of Kells to form a new vision of the place of these islands on the world stage.
