The characteristics of the insular manuscript initial, as described by Carl Nordenfalk, here reach their most extreme realisation: "the initials This copy of the sermons of Dublin book Augustine came to the Library of Trinity College Dublin in but was once in the possession of the Tironensian abbey of Kelso, Scotland. The volumes became a statement of wealth and social status among the nobility and have survived in great numbers as a result. Each of the Gospels is introduced by a consistent decorative programme. The marble bust collection was formed when 14 busts from the sculptor Peter Scheemakers were acquired by the college. Remapping Trinity seeks to follow the paths between those entrances and exits, and to invite people to construct their own understanding of the place in doing so.

Each Gospel was originally prefaced by a full page miniature containing the four evangelist symbols, followed by a Dublin book page. The two-page spread of the miniature and the text makes a vivid introductory statement for the prefatory material. How different might Trinity seem if we explored it through a literary atlas, which might encourage us to look again at the buildings and objects of the university, to think again about the histories it represents, and to recognise the human gestures of all the people who live, work, and pass through this place every day?

By the s the room had to be expanded as the shelves were filled due to the fact that the Library had been given permission to obtain a free copy of every book that had been published in Ireland and Britain. Within these damp, mysterious walls, gold-headed saints, hands folded piously over robes of sapphire blue and blood red, strain to be seen through hundreds of years of decay. The canon tables themselves inherently illustrate the unity of the Gospels by organising corresponding passages from the Gospels.
