[title size=”2″]Description[/title]

The Book of Kells, also known as the Book of Columba, is a religious text created by Celtic monks around the year 800 A.D. It is on permanent display in the Trinity College Library and, because of it’s extremely detailed and artistic design, the Book of Kells is regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest national treasures, as well as a crowning achievement in Western calligraphy.

The Book of Kells contains the complete Gospels of Mathew, Mark and Luke, as well as a portion of the Gospel of John, the rest of which having been lost in the 11th century. The Book does contain some errors when compared to accepted versions of the Gospels, but remains significant for its lavish decoration, having probably been used during Mass and not as a scholarly resource.
