10,000 manuscripts #1, the Boulogne Gospels.
The Boulogne Gospels (Boulogne-sur-Mer, Bibliothèque Municipale, MS 11) are a late 10th Century Gospel Book, made at the Abbey of St Bertin. They were heavily influenced by Anglo-Saxon art. They were illuminated by the “Ramsey Psalter Master” (perhaps named Odbert), who also illuminated the Ramsey Psalter and other manuscripts (Harley 2506 and Orléans Bibl. Mun. MS 175, and the Anhalt-Morgan Gospels ).
