Abstract

A study of the two surviving leaves of an Anglo-Saxon gospel book (Los Angeles, J. Paul Getty Museum, MS 9), concluding that the text was based on an Irish-influenced recension of the text transmitted to England by Breton manuscripts of the late Carolingian period and that a Carolingian model can also be proposed for the illustrations of the parent manuscript.
