Trinity College and the Book of Kells

Trinity College was created in 1592 by a royal charter, at a time when universities were being established throughout Western Europe. The 690-page Book of Kells is the centerpiece of the “Turning Darkness into Light” exhibition which attracts over 500,000 visitors to Trinity College every year. Written around 800 AD, the Book of Kells contains a richly decorated copy of the four gospels in a Latin text, written on vellum (prepared calfskin). The script is embellished by the elaboration of keywords and phrases and by an endlessly inventive range of decorated initials and interlinear drawings.
