Celtic illuminated manuscripts, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Celtic illuminated manuscripts, (1898). The lettering at top left is from the Lindisfarne Gospels, probably produced c715-720 AD in the monastery at Lindisfarne, Northumberland, and now in the British Library, London. Figs 1-5: 7th century. Figs 6 and 7: 8th century. Figs 9-11: 10th century. Fig 12: 11th century...For Celtic interlacing work, either filling up the spare surfaces of the letters or bordering the separate pages, the limbs or bodies of snakes, birds, dogs and fantastical animals were employed...Occasionally the human figure occurs, whereas the vegetable ornament is wholly wanting. Its introduction first dates from the 9th century, and after weak commencements (compare Fig. 8) it spreads more and more, next the ribbon ornament, under the influence of the Romanesque style'. Plate 30 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

Christs Mission to the Apostles, c. 970-980. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Christs Mission to the Apostles, c. 970-980. Creator: Unknown

Christ's Mission to the Apostles, c. 970-980. This ivory plaque represents a full-length figure of Christ flanked by bust-length portraits of the twelve apostles, six in a vertical column on each side. With his large eyes fixed on the beholder and his mouth slightly open, Christ seems about to speak to the apostles, charging them with the mission of preaching the Gospel to the world. The plaque may originally have formed the central decoration of a precious Gospel book cover that may have looked much like the one Christ carries in this image
