Of all the early medieval and Renaissance arts--from sculptures, ivories, frescoes, stained glass to easel and wall paintings--it is manuscript illumination, protected between its pages, that has been able to preserve the best evidence for experiencing the dazzling effects that the gold, silver and original glowing colours these objects would have had on earlier spectators. The focus therefore of this exciting and innovative exhibition is on COLOUR: it demonstrates and explains the acquisition and chemistry of pigments, the basic materials and constitution of the artist's colour palette, the technique and art of their application by the illuminator, and finally the understanding and aesthetic impact on the viewer.

The Book of Kells and the Art of Illumination brings together the Gospel of St. Mark from the 1200-year-old Irish masterpiece with a selection of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts which demonstrate the legacy of Kells throughout the centuries, both in terms of Gospel illustration and of the illuminated book. Not only does the Book of Kells testify to the vitality of Celtic art in the Early Middle Ages, but its fortunes also reflect the turbulent nature of the period in which it was created. This was an age in which the British Isles were ravaged by Viking raids, and monastic settlements, the cultural heart of the country, up-rooted. Yet, against these odds, the Book of Kells survived. In later times it suffered further disturbances, and in the middle of the 17th century, during Ireland's battles with Cromwell, it was transferred from the ruined parish of Kells to Trinity College, Dublin, where ever since it has had a secure and distinguished home.

“The Art Of Illumination is a spellbinding book that transports one into a world of wonder, mystery, and divine empowerment. It weaves a tale of long lost wisdom and sprinkles it at the feet of the reader like gorgeous pearls. I cannot recommend it highly enough. A fantastic read.” — Sonia Choquette, NYTimes best-selling author of The Answer Is Simple. Love Yourself. live Your Spirit “The Art of Illumination is the stunning tale of one man’s journey into the deepest realm of the soul. A compelling mystery propels this luminous exploration of the human experience of the divine. A wise and beautiful book, it grabbed my heart from the first chapter and never let go. It’s a remarkable story, written with startling vision and grace by a promising new author. It will leave you awed, moved and hungering for more.” — Maureen Boyd Biro, author of “Walking With Maga” and “Voices of the Valley, First Press”. “This book is amazing - I picked it up just to check a few lines and couldn’t stop reading. I felt as though it was educating me, and I could imagine everything as if I was watching a movie. There wasn’t one part of the book which did not make me want to quickly turn to another page.” — June Dally Watkins, Education and Training | Business Finishing College. The year is 1097. Britain has been politically unstable for an age, and it doesn’t seem as though things will be settling down any time soon. It isn’t just political issues that threaten the population, however. Without an understanding of the nature of pestilence or the knowledge of how to treat it, disease runs rampant through the population, affecting everyone in its path. While tragedy rampages unchallenged, one place stands apart from the events afflicting the world at large. Hidden away in a corner of the land stands the large, stone monastery that serves as a shelter from the terrifying world. It is here that one man finds himself on a journey he never expected he would take. He discovers the art of illumination, not only in the creation of beautiful manuscripts, but in illumination of the soul. In the process, he also uncovers a secret that will propel him into a world he never expected to find.
