The Book of Kells was written around the year 800 AD and is one of the most beautifully illuminated manuscripts in the world. It contains the four gospels, preceded by prefaces, summaries, and canon tables or concordances of gospel passages. It is written on vellum and contains a Latin text of the Gospels in insular majuscule script accompanied by magnificent and intricate whole pages of decoration with smaller painted decorations appearing throughout the text. The manuscript was given to Trinity College in the 17th century and since 1953 has been bound in four volumes. It has been on display in the Old Library since the 19th century. Two volumes can normally be seen, one opened to display a major decorated page, and one to show two pages of script. A CD-ROM version of all 340 folios from the Book of Kells is available for purchase. Library exhibitions feature various themes. The current exhibition The Book of Kells: Turning Darkness into Light runs from 22nd February 1999 until the end of the year 2001.

HOMEPAGE @*** NEWS ***July 2001 Iona and Cornerstone Festival Committee announced the cancellation of Iona's scheduled appearance at this year's festival on July 4th. Iona's singer, Joanne Hogg, is pregnant, and two Transatlantic flights and all stress involved in the trip, could place an unacceptable strain on her baby with potentially life-threatening consequences. The band took a unanimous decision to cancel their appearance, a decision fully understood and endorsed by the Cornerstone team. In view of the circumstances detailed above, Iona have also contacted Greenbelt Festival to inform them of the situation, canceling appearance at UK Festival. May 2000 The long waited new Iona studio album Open Sky is finally out and ready for ordering. March 2000 Tour dates in the UK have finally been confirmed. For overseas fans, the tour is UK only with no plans at the moment for any other countries. Check out concerts diary to learn more.
