New display for 'Book of Kells'

The Book of Kells is getting a setting worthy of its status as a world-renowned cultural artefact and Ireland’s best known treasure.Book of Kells 2

For decades the book, visited by some 500,000 people a year, was on display in a glass case in the old library at Trinity College Dublin. However, neither the light nor the location were regarded as optimal for a ninth century manuscript.
From this week the book is being displayed in a bespoke glass case in the college’s treasury room which will be in darkness but for a spotlight on the book.
The case will allow for every page to be displayed on a rotating basis. This will include some of its most ornate pages which have not been on public display for many decades because of their sensitivity to light.

 

The case has been designed by Goppion, which has done similar work relating to the display of the Mona Lisa, Britain’s crown jewels and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
The display case and refurbishment of the treasury room has been funded by Fáilte Ireland and philanthropist Carol Grigor and her husband filmmaker husband Murray Grigor.
