The Trinity College and Its Old Library

4 05 2015

The Book of Kells at Trinity College‘s Old Library in Dublin, Ireland, was interesting for me as I have liked “insular art” from learning about the Lindisfarne Gospels as part of my Old English studies in college and seeing it in the British Museum years ago (though now displayed in the British Library).

And the Old Library’s “Long Room” was quite fascinating to see.  It really is a long (and tall) room.

A winding staircase going upwards.

Yes, it's long.

Yes, it’s long.
