Dr Carol Farr

Research Fellow

Carol Farr is an art historian specialising in decorated manuscripts of early medieval Britain and Ireland.

She has lectured at universities in the US and the UK. She has published on relationships of visual art in manuscripts such as the Book of Kells to interpretation of text and public reading. Reuse and recycling of manuscripts have also been her topics. While finishing a book on early Latin gospel books, she is researching fragments of early liturgical manuscripts and artistic styles of ninth- to twelfth-century Irish manuscript art.
