The essays in this volume all derive from papers given at the conference, 'Manuscripts in the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms', held a the British Library on 13-14 December 2018. For the related exhibition catalogue, Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, Word, War, see Worldwide W011431. Publisher's description: Manuscripts that were made and used in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms before the Norman conquest of England are treasure troves of art and text. Many of these books and documents were brought together in the British Library exhibition, Anglo-Saxon kingdoms: art, word, war. Together, these manuscripts illuminate extensive intellectual connections as well as widespread scribal and artistic networks that developed within the islands of Britain and Ireland, and further afield across much of early medieval Europe. Using new scientific methods, as well as textual criticism, art historical analysis, and historical research, the essays in this richly illustrated volume, written by leading scholars, present innovative research that focuses on manuscripts that were copied, decorated, or used in the early English kingdoms and their neighbors across a 500-year period from the advent of Christianity among the English, c.600, to the age of conquest in the eleventh century.
