Additional Information


The wonderful library of Trinity College contains somewhere in the range of five million books - yet the one that most guests set out here to see is one of Ireland's most prominent fortunes: the Book of Kells. The lit up gospel original copy was written by hand by Celtic priests around the year 800. The original copy, written in Latin, is bound in four volumes; they contain the four Gospels of the New Testament. It is a work of extreme excellence: a genuine gem of calligraphy, light, representation and ornamentation. Two of the four volumes are in plain view at the library.
