Pewter Lindisfarne belt buckle with embossed Lindisfarne design.
This buckle has a hinged bar for the belt to clip onto and the other end has a strong prong to push through the hole in the belt.
The Lindisfarne design on this item comes from the famous Lindisfarne Gospels. An opulent and richly decorated Gospel book, the Lindisfarne Gospels was created in the early eighth century CE for ceremonial use at the monastery of Lindisfarne in the northeast of England. The manuscript’s main text, which was written out by a single scribe, is a Latin version of the Four Gospels known as Saint Jerome’s Vulgate. This is a revision of the Latin Bible made in the late fourth century CE and widely used throughout the western world.
