The Book of Kells: The Work of Angels?

Produced by monastic scribes over a millennium ago, The Book of Kells is among the most famous and richly decorated Gospel manuscripts in the world; it is a great national treasure, housed in Trinity College (Dublin).  The film reveals the fascinating story behind the Book's production and illuminates Ireland's central role in preserving Western culture during the Dark Ages.
