The Shrine of the Book of Dimma with the inscription that translates "Teige O'Carroll King of Eile had me gilt".


The Book of Dimma (Dublin, Trinity College, MS.A.IV.23) is an 8th-century Irish pocket Gospel Book originally from the Abbey of Roscrea founded by St. Cronan in the County Tipperary Ireland. In addition to the four Gospels in between the Gospels of Luke and John it has an order for the Unction and Communion of the Sick. It was signed by its scribe Dimma MacNathi at the end of each of the Gospels. This Dimma has been traditionally identified with the Dimma who was later Bishop of Connor mentioned by Pope John IV in a letter on Pelagianism in 640. The illumination of the manuscript is limited to illuminated initials three Evangelist portrait pages and one page with an Evangelist's symbol. In the 12th century the manuscript was encased in a richly gilt case by O'Carroll of Ely.
