Carpet page from the Lindisfarne Gospels
A carpet page from the Lindisfarne Gospels, from the beginning of St Matthew's Gospel. This is probably the best known page from the manuscript as its well-defined design has frequently been reproduced. It is known as a carpet page due to the rich, ornate abstract patterns whose mix of detail and large-scale effect is similar to that seen on high-quality carpets.
The page is from the Lindisfarne Gospels, one of the most magnificent manuscripts created in the Middle Ages. It was written and decorated at the end of the 7th century by the monk Eadfrith, who became Bishop of Lindisfarne in 689 and died in 721.
Cotton MS Nero D.IV, f.25v.
