"A manuscript sold at auction in 1887 for [pound]6 where it was incorrectly described as a fourteenth-century work was discovered on later inspection to be none other than the lost Gospel-book of St. Margaret, the eleventh-century queen of Scotland. Rebecca Rushforth explores St. Margaret's life and Gospel-book, placing her in the context of the turbulent political shifts which saw her exile to Scotland after the Norman Conquest, and her marriage to Malcolm; her contribution to the making of Scotland as a European power; and her posthumous career as a saint, in which she was invoked as a force for stability and reconciliation as late as the Restoration. She describes step-by-step how St. Margaret's Gospel-book was made, exploring the writing, illumination, and binding of the manuscript. She also compares the book with other contemporary gospel books, examining their iconography and production. This work brings to life the story of a highly treasured personal book and the circumstances behind its creation, use, loss, and rediscovery."--Jacket
