The Book of Kells, one of Ireland’s great treasures is also a European cultural icon, and is among our top ten tourist attractions
The Book of Kells, one of great treasures of medieval Europe, is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing four Gospels of New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was created by Celtic monks some time around 800 AD. It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy, employing decoration that is not only extraordinarily rich and colorful but also, in places, deeply enigmatic. It is widely regarded as Ireland’s finest national treasure. The Book is on permanent display at Trinity College Library in Dublin. The library usually displays two of current four volumes at a time, one showing a major illustration and other showing typical text pages.”
