The Book of Kells is one of the most well known illuminated manuscripts in the world. Now on display in Dublin's historic Trinity College, the book was created by Celtic monks sometime around the year 800 CE (the exact date is unknown.) The book is so well known due to the astonishing intricacy of the illustrations that adorn its pages. A visit to the Book of Kells and its exhibit is not to be missed while in Dublin.
