Nearly 700 pages of the famous Book of Kells manuscript, created by Celtic monks ca. 800AD, is now available on The Book of Kells for iPad App.
The creators of the app have captured the beautiful New Testament illustrations in digital form, giving the already famous book an opportunity to reach an even greater worldwide audience.
The unfinished manuscript which has resided in the Trinity College Library, since 1661, takes its name from the Abbey of Kells that was its home for centuries. Here you can find a full history of the origins and life of the Book of Kells.
