A monolithic gas discharge display panel includes a plurality of pairs of sustaining electrodes provided on a first substrate, a plurality of write electrodes separated from the pairs of sustaining electrodes by a dielectric layer and arranged to intersect the sustaining electrodes, and an insulating layer provided on the write electrodes and the dielectric layer for providing a leakage current from the insulating layer to the write electrodes. A second substrate spaced from and in parallel relation to the first substrate forms a gap between the insulating layer and the second substrate, the gap being filled with a discharge gas. A method of driving such a monolithic gas discharge panel prevents damage to the insulating layer means by applying a write voltage to the write electrodes which is of a positive potential with respect to the sustaining voltage applied to the sustaining electrodes and which relies on an internal decoding function of the panel to simplify driving circuitry and to eliminate the need for certain erase pulses.
