In the last few decades there has been an increasing interest in the construction of design pages in Insular manuscripts from die seventh to the ninth centuries. Most interest has been focussed on die Lindisfarne Gospels, with Janet Backhouse drawing attention to construction marks on the reverse of some pages in the manuscript, notably ff. 26 v , 9 4 v and 21 l V while several other pages have been analysed by Jacques Guilmain and Inga Christine Swenson, the latter concentrating on symmetry. 2 There has also appeared a new emphasis on the geometry of page design, resulting in a better understanding of the meUiods used. The bulk of die work in diis area has been carried out by the mathematician, Robert Stevick. Using visible marks on the front and reverse of pages, Stevick has attempted to duplicate geometric construction methods employed by die scribes. T otiiisend, he has examined pages in the St Gallen Gospels Book, die cross-carpet pages in the Lindisfarne and Lichfield Gospels, and the Evangelist pages in the Book of Durrow and the Echternach Gospels.3 However, all of these scholars have been wholly concerned widi the physical appearance of the page.
