Book of Kells Now Free to View Online

The Book of Kells is the world’s most famous medieval manuscript–it is a beautifully decorated, intricate copy of the four Gospels dating back to the 9th century. I was lucky enough to see a few pages of the Book of Kells under security glass at Library of Trinity College in Dublin, but now the book is online for everyone to see. You can even zoom in to see the detail on the pages. The link is in the article below. Enjoy!

  2. This is a neat site… Will need to take some time to look at it on my laptop, vs the iPad… It’s too small for my old eyes… 🙂
