The Codex Amiatinus

The Codex Amiatinus is the earliest complete bible in Latin.  It was created c 700 at the monastery of Monkwearmouth-Jarrow in Northumberland, as a gift to the shrine of St Peter in Rome. In 716 Abbot Ceolfrith set off to deliver it, but, sadly, he died on the way. It is now in the Laurentian Library in Florence.
  The huge volume has 1030 vellum pages, made from the skins of over 500 animals. The Old and New Testaments are prefaced with full page illuminations: Ezra busy writing for the Old Testament, and Christ in Majesty surrounded by the four evangelists for the New Testament.

As the name suggests, them monastery of Monkwearmouth-Jarrow had two locations in what is now Northumberland. The monastic chapels still exist as parish churches, though inevitably little remains of the original buildings. There are substantial ruins at Jarrow, but not at Monkwearmouth. I have written about them here.
