Last month one of the world's most precious books was brought back to the region, and a project in Gateshead has found an unusual way to celebrate.
It is all about Street art - and graffiti - based on the Lindisfarne gospels - on the walls of a church.
Watch the full report from Katie Oakes below.
Four street artists from Gateshead are working on a 'Graffiti Gospels' project to celebrate the return of the Lindisfarne Gospels to the region.
Based at St Edmund's Chapel, the four artists will work for two hours each day as artists-in-resident - working directly onto the gallery wall on artwork inspired by the four gospels.
The public will be able to see the art taking shape over the month of July, as well as when it goes on display as a finished piece in August.
The artists will also be running street art workshops with children from the region's primary schools and giving them lessons in street art calligraphy.
