The Saint Petersburg Gospels or Leningrad Gospels (housed in Saint Petersburg at the Imperial Public Library Cod. F. v. I. 8) is an illuminated manuscript of the gospels in Hiberno-Saxon style dating from around 800 AD.[1]

This highly idiosyncratic work may have been produced in England south of the Humber. It is not to be confused with the Leningrad Codex of the Hebrew Bible.
