Opening words of St Lukes Gospel Quoniam from the Book of Kells, c800

Opening words of St Luke's Gospel Quoniam from the Book of Kells, c800. The Book of Kells is a manuscript of the Four Gospels originally thought to have been produced in Ireland in the 6th century at the time of St Columba, possibly at least in part by his own hand. Historians now believe it was made by Celtic monks on Iona around the late 8th-early 9th century. Its name is derived from the Abbey of Kells in County Meath, Ireland, where the book was taken, probably after a Viking raid, and where it was kept until 1541

Celtic illuminated manuscripts, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Celtic illuminated manuscripts, (1898). The lettering at top left is from the Lindisfarne Gospels, probably produced c715-720 AD in the monastery at Lindisfarne, Northumberland, and now in the British Library, London. Figs 1-5: 7th century. Figs 6 and 7: 8th century. Figs 9-11: 10th century. Fig 12: 11th century...For Celtic interlacing work, either filling up the spare surfaces of the letters or bordering the separate pages, the limbs or bodies of snakes, birds, dogs and fantastical animals were employed...Occasionally the human figure occurs, whereas the vegetable ornament is wholly wanting. Its introduction first dates from the 9th century, and after weak commencements (compare Fig. 8) it spreads more and more, next the ribbon ornament, under the influence of the Romanesque style'. Plate 30 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]
