Lindisfarne Scriptorium - Treasures for the Journey
Customer Type: Retail

New Products

We are Lindisfarne Scriptorium, a small business based on a small Island off the coast of Northumbria roughly half-way between Newcastle and Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne was key to the Christian faith being spread throughout the North of England in the 7th century A.D. and was the location of a Celtic and then later Benedictine monastic community.

Taking spiritual and visual inspiration from the work of the monks who created wonderful books like the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Book of Kells, the calligraphy, illumination and illustration we offer you is a merging of old skills with new materials and new techniques inspired by ancient sacred works.

We aim to offer an artform which draws the viewer into an experience of prayer, meditation and blessing. Our inspiration is also drawn from the rich Celtic spirituality of Northumbria; our Christian faith and the beautiful environment of Holy Island. We aim to follow the great Monastic Scriptorium tradition of producing pieces of artwork that give glory to God and help His people to worship.

 

We are readying the site for another sale. Please come back on the 1st July to see the offers.

Wild Goose (C) Mary Fleeson / www.lindisfarne-scriptorium.co.uk 2017

In modern Celtic tradition the Holy Spirit is represented as a bird, but not the peaceful and serene dove landing on Jesus at his baptism.

The Wild Goose tells a different side of the Holy Spirit. To begin with, wild geese aren’t controllable, you can’t restrain a wild goose and bend it to your will. They’re raucous and loud, unlike the sweet and calming cooing of a dove, a goose’s call is strong, challenging, strident and unnerving - and just a bit scary.
