John The Evangelist

The Book of Kells is the most famous of Irish illuminated manuscripts.

The Book of Kells is a Latin text of the Four Gospels and contains spectacular full-page illustrations of Christ, the Virgin, and the Evangelists. The masterpiece of medieval art is on display in the library of Trinity College, Dublin, where it has been kept since the mid-seventeenth century.
