Illuminated manuscript in Latin, containing the four Gospels of the New Testament together with various prefatory texts and tables. It was transcribed by Celtic monks ca. 800. The illustrations and ornamentation of the Book of Kells surpass that of other Insular Gospels in extravagance and complexity. Today, it is on permanent display at the library of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.
