      If you’re right about the Lérins connection, it makes me wonder about other links between Wearmouth-Jarrow and the Continent, not only in Biscop’s time but later too. I suppose a good starting-point might be the Jarrow Lecture (‘The Scriptorium of Wearmouth-Jarrow’ by Malcolm Parkes) but I don’t have a copy of it handy. The Codex Amiatinus is the earliest surviving manuscript of the complete Bible in the Latin Vulgate.

In the particular circumstances of the Wearmouth-Jarrow scriptorium (wherever that was and however it be construed) during the late seventh and early eighth century, time was always free - in the sense that no one was being paid per hour or per stint - and often of no great consequence: assuming there was no fixed deadline for a project, if the work were not finished this year then there was always next.

Benedict Biscop built his church at Wearmouth in the Roman fashion and furnished it with glass windows (a first in England), pictures, and service-books. The abbey was thus the cradle not only of English art but of English literature, for the Venerable Bede received his early education at St.
