Brown invites a fresh consideration not only of dating and authorship of the manuscript, but also of its purpose and content. The Book of Cerne is a prayerbook (meditating upon the themes of salvation and the communion of saints) made for a patron whose cultural tastes embraced Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Carolingian, Roman and Byzantine materials. With its complex interplay of text, script and image, it offers a fascinating insight into Insular culture and is the only surviving illuminated manuscript which can be firmly attributed to the powerful Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia."--Jacket."
