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.
