This page is one particular illuminated page from the Book of Kells. It is the Chi-rho, a symbol still used in the Roman Catholic Church, that symbolizes Christ's name as it is the first two letters of the word. The most fascinating thing about the Book of Kells is that everything was done by hand with such precision and detail. There is nothing that is just filled in with a color. Everything has designs and patterns infused within it and to the smallest scale. With the same effect as impressive, beautiful cathedrals, this illuminated text of the four Christian gospels inspires reverence and interest in what it is professing.
