"Work of art, should be appreciated" Book of Kells Tip by sus1973

Book of Kells, Dublin: 4 reviews and 1 photos

We went to visit the trinity a couple of days ago, I have to say I was impressed with the campus itself, so full of history. Couldn't help but thinking how lucky those students walking by us were to be able to study in such a historical place. The tour before the library in which you are explained about the Book of Kells and other historical ancient irish books is so interesting and the sight of the Book of Kells itself is amazing, with such a historical background and the explanations on how it was written it makes you think on how those people spent days and months working on it. It makes it a incredible work of art.
I was also deeply impressed by the library itself, the long room. We even spotted in the bookcases some ancient editions of the Civil Compilations by Justiniano (me and my friend have studied law, so we were impressed to see them) and a first edition of Dante's Divine Comedy. It is worth a visit.
