Book of Kells
Glimpse at the detail in the renowned Book of Kells in Trinity College. This lavishly illustrated manuscript of the Gospels dates back to the 9th century, and it is simply a marvel of Early Christian art carried out by the monks’ steady hands. The 65-metre Long Room in the Old Library is an incredible sight, and it is filled with old books, marble busts and a barrel-vaulted ceiling. This is also the room that inspired the imagery of the Jedi Archive in Star Wars Episode II.
