St Augustine on St John’s Gospel

Durham Cathedral Library MS B.II.16

A copy of one of the major theologians of the Middle Ages writing on the most esoteric of the Gospels. Written in St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury at the end of the 11th century this is very similar to the books given to Durham by Bishop William of St Calais and is a fine example of British book production during the transition period between Anglo-Saxon and Norman England.
