The world's most beautiful book: The Book of Kells

The Book of Kells (book of Kells), together with "The Book of Darrow" and "The Gospel of Lindisfarne", is regarded as one of the three major Celtic manuscripts, is a national treasure of Ireland, also called "the world's most beautiful book" It is. It was produced in the 8th century, 33 cm in length and 24 cm in width. It is a liturgical gospel decorated with luxurious Celtic patterns and contains four Gospels (Gospel according to Matthew, Gospel according to Markus, Gospel of Luke, Gospel of John). In order to honor the accomplishment of St. Columba, production was started at the Iona Abbey in Iona, Scotland, and then completed at the Kells Abbey in Ireland. Currently it is in the Trinity College Museum of the University of Dublin. It has been selected as a UNESCO Memorial Heritage (World Memory Heritage) that selects recorded goods that human beings are worthy to remember for a long time to convey to future generations. As a Celtic art (style) art book, a complete restored version of the wonderful "Kells' book" is sometimes sold for about 2.2 million yen in Maruzen etc. It is a search list of "Book of Kells" on Amazon. In Ireland and Scotland, a unique stone crucifix, symbolized by a circle attached to the cross, is seen as a symbol by faith in ancient Celtic stone and fusion of Christianity. Celtic culture has been merged with Christianity and Celtic monasteries now exist. There, Celtic designs (designs) were decorated in the manuscript of the Gospel, and developed along with Christianity. "Swirl pattern" "Braid pattern" "Animal pattern" is a typical pattern that adorns Celtic manuscripts. The art of Celtic Art has also influenced the Art Nouveau decorative art of the modern era and has been handed down to the present age under "constant change". Ancient Celts do not have letters, religion is a polytheism of natural worship, myths have been oralized. I think that the commonality and similarity with the cultures 'oral literature', 'nature perspective' and 'Ainu pattern' cultivated by Japanese indigenous people Ainu are not coincidental.
