Book/Printed Material Gospels of Luke and John. Lukas- und Johannesevangelium

About this Item

Title

  • Gospels of Luke and John.

Other Title

  • Lukas- und Johannesevangelium

Summary

  • This manuscript containing the gospels of Luke and John originally formed a whole with another gospel book fragment now preserved in Weimar. The Weimar manuscript contains prologues, canon tables, the gospels of Matthew and Mark, and, at the end, the argumentum (introduction) and breviarium (summary) to Luke. Each gospel begins with a portrait of the evangelist and a full-page initial. The manuscript, of high quality, is clearly the work of an important scriptorium influenced by that at Saint Gallen; it may have been written at Mainz.
