Book excerpt: This is the first detailed study of the Trier Gospels, an important early medieval manuscript. Netzer sheds light on the process of the book's production, the models that preceded it, and the background of its two scribe-artists. She also reveals the complicated process of cultural interplay that took place in the scriptorium at Echternach (in modern day Luxembourg) in the eighth century. This study makes a valuable contribution to the understanding of medieval book production, and of the influence of missionaries on early continental culture.
