he Book of Durrow is among the earliest-surviving decorated manuscripts in northwestern Europe. A masterpiece of Celtic art, it is believed to be the oldest fully decorated Insular Gospel that survives, pre-dating the Book of Kells by more than a century. Created in a monastery associated with the Irish saint Colum Cille (St Columba), its text and artwork reflect the formative years of a distinctive `golden age' of artistic production in Ireland and Britain. This richly decorated introductory guide explores the manuscript's distinctive artwork, providing a fascinating view of the eclectic sources drawn upon by the scribe/illuminator to adorn this sacred text.
