Southumbrian, probably Mercian liturgical manuscript of the early 9th century containing extracts from the four Gospels, a collection of hymns and prayers, and an abbreviated Psalter. It is introduced by an Old English exhortation to prayer and concludes with a dramatic piece about the Harrowing of Hell. Signs of Irish influence in the style and contents of the manuscript have led scholars to regard the Book of Cerne as a witness to a shared Hiberno-Saxon monastic culture, although some of the details are disputed.
