The Book of Kells is a hand-written and hand-illustrated manuscript in the Celtic Art style, probably created between 650 and 700 AD. The Celtic style is characterized by dense and intricate decoration, often using spirals, circles and other geometric motifs. The Book of Kells is one of the earliest surviving Irish illuminated gospel books.
There is much speculation in Ireland among Celtic historians & academics on how to interpret the ancient pre-Christian meaning & significance of the Celtic art, we will have to leave that debate to the experts. For our part we focus on the undeniable artistic beauty of it’s form.
