Sunday Stills: 100+

A bit of an unusual one here for this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge: 100+ York-gospels

I love old books and manuscripts, and this is a photopgraph I took last summer of pages (folios) from the original illuminated manuscript of the York Gospels, currently on display in the undercroft of York Minster in the City of York, England – this is an Anglo-Saxon Gospel book, made in Canterbury almost 1000 years ago. The book first came to York around 1020AD, and is still used in religious ceremonies in York Minster today – so very definitely over 100 years old! šŸ™‚
