British Library Eyes Ancient Cuthbert Gospel
The small book — 96 mm (3.8 inches) by 136 mm (5.4 inches) — fits easily in the palm of a hand. Its elaborately tooled leather cover, and the text of the Gospel of John in Latin, is complete. The book comes from the time of St. Cuthbert, who died in 687, and it was discovered inside his coffin at Durham Cathedral when it was reopened in 1104.
