the anteroom

The Celts created stylized images, inspired from animals and the world around them, and then entwined these images with intricate knotwork. These styles were then integrated by the first Christians to come to the British Celtic lands into their religious artwork (much the same way as the Celts originally did).

One of the best examples of this can be seen in The Book of Kells, now on display at Trinity University, Dublin.

Each image is showcased in it's own niche. Click on the link to view.

You will find credits and links to the generous souls who have provided the Celtic art, music, poetry and reference material free on the Web, as well as a bibliography of the books and publications that make up a large part of my library and have been a rich resource for these pages in the Credits list.
