The Wessex Gospels (also known as the West-Saxon Gospels) are a full translation of the four gospels of the Christian Bible into a West Saxon dialect of Old English and one of several Old English Bible translations. Produced in approximately 990 A.D. in present-day England, they are the first translation of all four gospels into English without the Latin text. Seven manuscript copies survive.
