Codex Amiatinus and Its "sister" Bibles: Scripture, Liturgy, and Art in the Milieu of the Venerable Bede
$140.00
The Codex Amiatinus and its "Sister" Bibles examines the full Bibles (Bibles containing every scriptural text that producers deemed canonical) made at the northern English monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow under Abbot Ceolfrith (d. 716) and the Venerable Bede (d. 735), and the religious, cultural, and intellectual circumstances of their production. The key manuscript witness of this monastery's Bible-making enterprise is the Codex Amiatinus, a massive illustrated volume sent toward Rome in June 716, as a gift to St. Peter. Amiatinus is the oldest extant, largely intact Latin full Bible. Its survival is the critical reason that Ceolfrith's Wearmouth-Jarrow has long been recognized as a pivotal center in the evolution of the design, structure, and contents of medieval biblical codices.
