Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
"The Lichfield Gospels is an eighth century Insular Gospel Book housed in Lichfield Cathedral. There are 236 surviving folios, eight of which are illuminated. Another four contain framed text. The pages themselves measure 30.8 cm by 23.5 cm. The manuscript is also important because it includes, as marginalia, some of the earliest known examples of written Welsh. Peter Lord dates the book at 730, placing it chronologically before the Book of Kells but after the Lindisfarne Gospels."
