A prototype of the L3 electromagnetic calorimeter to be used at LEP and consisting of 100 tapered BGO crystals has been tested in an electron beam in the energy range of 2 to 50 GeV. The energy resolution and linearity of response have been measured, and are compared to predictions made with the GEANT Monte Carlo program.
