A Gospel Book
is a codex
or bound volume, containing one or more of the four Gospels of the Christian New Testament
. In the Middle Ages
the production of copies of the entire Bible was rare. Individual books or collections of books were produced for specific purposes. Gospel Books were produced for private study or for ceremonial purposes. Many of these volumes were quite elaborate. Gospel books often contained, in addition to the text of the Gospels themselves, supporting texts including Canon Tables
, summaries, glossaries, and other explanatory material.
