Permulaan Injil Markus dari Kitab Durrow.

Kitab Durrow adalah sebuah kitab injil manuskrip bergambar abad pertengahan dalam gaya seni rupa Insular. Karya tersebut diyakini dibuat antara tahun 650 dan 700.[1] Tempat pembuatannya diyakini adalah Keabbasan Durrow di Irlandia atau sebuah monasteri di Northumbria, timur laut Inggris (dimana monasteri di Lindisfarne tampaknya menjadi kandidatnya) atau mungkin Keabbasan Iona di barat Skotlandia—tempat asalnya telah diperdebatkan di kalangan sejarawan selama berdekade-dekade tanpa konsensus.[2]

  1. ^ O'Neil, 14
  2. ^ Meehan, 17-22, who seems to give Ireland the edge; Wilson, 33-36, who favours Northumbria. Both discuss the views of other scholars. Some suggest the Book of Durrow was brought to Durrow Abbey from Britain by monks who were fleeing Viking attacks in Britain.
