Talk: The Earliest-Surviving Manuscripts in Northwestern Europe

Sunday, 31 March – 2:00pm Oxford OX1 3BG, UK

Art historian and author Rachel Moss introduces the 1,300-year-old masterpiece of Celtic art, The Book of Durrow.

The Book of Durrow is among the earliest surviving decorated manuscripts in north-western Europe, dating to the late seventh century AD. A masterpiece of Celtic art, it is believed to be the oldest fully decorated Insular Gospel that survives, pre-dating the Book of Kells by more than a century.

 

This event is part of The Oxford Literary Festival.
