The Book of Kells contains almost 2000 decorated initials, the majority of which are formed by human figures, beasts, birds and fish. Word and Image in the Book of Kells offers an in-depth examination of the smaller decorated initials, script layout, and marginalia. The display script and full-page images are reconsidered within the context of the manuscript's minor decoration, suggesting that much of the manuscript's decoration is self-referential and articulates the manner inËœwhich the gospel text functioned as an instrument of salvation.
