Dr Carol Farr, London-based art historian, researches art in early medieval manuscripts. Having written her PhD thesis at the University of Texas at Austin (1989) on the liturgical background of the art of the Book of Kells and its relationships to the manuscript’s graphic structuring of text, she continues research and publication on 7th- to 12th-century manuscripts associated with Britain and Ireland.
