The Book of Kells was originally prepared as a devotional and liturgical work. Image & Vision: Reflecting with the Book of Kells explores the intricate relationship between the text, image and vision, and the scriptural texts that underpin them.
Concentrating on twelve of the magnificent illuminations in the Book of Kells, this beautiful book provides clear and accessible guidelines on ways to reflect and meditate on these illuminations and the scripture as a whole. The book contains original research, especially on some of the lesser-known illuminations, and is filled with fascinating analysis of this ancient and sacred work.
In Image & Vision: Reflecting with the Book of Kells, Rosemary Power shows how we can use the beauty, humour and insight of this ancient devotional work today to deepen our understanding of scripture and society.
