Exploring the Lindisfarne Gospels

17th September - 1st December

The Lindisfarne Gospels will be on display at Newcastle’s Laing Art Gallery from 17 September to 3 December 2022, on loan from the British Library. Newcastle Cathedral will be one of the many North East venues hosting events inspired by the display in autumn 2022.

An interactive data visualisation of the Lindisfarne Gospels will be brought to life in Seeing the Word: Twitter Gospels 2.0. Curated by Dr Andrew Richardson, the visualisation will be based on the digital illumination of words using social media data of online activity and engagement with the texts.  

There will also be tours and workshops connected to the Cathedral’s precious 14th Century scriptures, the Hexham Bible, the Northern Saints, the Gospels and their heritage, including stained glass, calligraphy, textile design, music, and storytelling. Talks will cover art, spirituality and sacredness from speakers including the Very Revd Geoff Miller, Dean of Newcastle. There will also be regular creative activities for families, connected to the themes of the Lindisfarne Gospels.
