The Book of Durrow

As with the Book of Kells this is an early handwritten and illuminated version of the Four Gospels [126537]. It was made about a hundred years earlier ~ about 1300 years ago. It now resides ~ safely ~ in the custody of The Library of Trinity College, Dublin. The following pictures have been taken from various sources on the WWW ~ most originating from Trinity College. It is important to note that some of these images have been enhanced. The least contrasty ones are the more accrate representations. I have not yet captioned them sensibly
