Trinity College Visitor Experience17/10/22
We have some very prestigious clients at Ebow The Digital Agency but one of our latest appointments for “Ireland’s greatest cultural treasure” The Book of Kells and the Trinity College Visitor Experience is a highlight.
The Book of Kells is an illuminated manuscript Gospel book in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It is believed to have been created c. 800 AD.
It is a masterwork of Western calligraphy and represents the pinnacle of Insular illumination. The manuscript takes its name from the Abbey of Kells, County Meath, which was its home for centuries.
The manuscript is in Trinity College Library, Dublin which usually has on display at any given time two of the four volumes it is now divided into, open to show a major illustration from one and a typical text page from the other, rotated frequently. A digitised version of the entire manuscript may also be seen online.
