A talk by Dr Moss – Trinity College Dublin
A talk (aprox. 1 hour) at The Princess Grace Irish Library – followed by a drink. By Dr Rachel Moss, professor at Ireland’s number one university Trinity College Dublin and an authority on the art and architecture of medieval Ireland.
The Book of Kells is regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures, described by some as ‘the most famous manuscript in the world’. But why do over one million people a year of all faiths and ages visit a 1,200-year-old copy of the New Testament? In this talk Dr Moss will explore its long history, from its creation to the circumstances of its miraculous survival and home in Trinity College Library, as well as its influence on Irish cultural life, ranging from works of James Joyce to the Irish pub.
