The Book of Kells, created by Celtic Monks (c. 800)

These are a few example pages from The Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript Gospel Book written in Latin by Celtic Monks.

The Book of Kells is very similar to other gospel books made around the 8th century and after, including The Lindisfarne Gospels (c. 700). Both are very famous examples of Insular art, regarded as one of Ireland’s finest national treasures.
