  Trinity Book of Kells
by Goner

On our tour we saw the "Book of Kells" and the massive Trinity "Old library". The viewing of the "Kells" was inspirational. This 800-year old work of art is indicative of the struggle for the continuance of our Christian faith. It had been hidden and rescued and kept in an almost perfect condition. The ink that was used in the magnificent volume had been imported from around the world. Many men gave their labor of love to tell the story of Christ

After our tourist stop at the bookstore we snooped around the campus taking pictures waiting to receive our Phil Society card.

Really loved the museum shop there, they have lovely things.
