Gisburne Bible

The Gisburne Bible was donated to Gisborough Priory in 1333 after a fire in 1289 had destroyed many of their books. It stayed there until the Dissolution of the Monasteries around 1540.

It subsequently passed through many hands before going to St John’s College Cambridge in 1635, where it has been kept ever since.

It can be viewed in Guisborough Library between September 26 and October 29 as part of the 900th Anniversary of Guisborough Priory events being organised by
