Excerpt from Fac-Similes of the Miniatures and Ornaments of Anglo-Saxon and Irish Manuscripts

I shall therefore in this place confine myself to the question of the origin of these peculiar styles of ornament which are described in the two memoirs above mentioned, and which are so extensively illustrated in the plates of this work.

To suppose that (occurring, as they do, abundantly in manuscripts, stone monuments, ivory carvings, and chasings of the precious metals) these systems of ornamentation had their origin in Byzantium, where nothing analogous in any of these materials, of a contemporary or earlier date, has ever been seen, is, it must be allowed, somewhat illogical. The same observation may be applied also to Rome, from whence it has been affirmed not only that the early artists of these islands derived their inspiration, but that even one of the finest of the Irish crosses had been brought from Italy! During a recent visit to Rome, Ravenna, &c., I especially directed my attention to the solution of this question, if possible, by a careful study of the existing remains of Early Christian Art, some of which, especially the earliest Mosaics, must doubtless have been seen by our anglo-saxon and Irish pilgrims, so many of whom are recorded to have made even frequent visits to Rome, as well as to the Holy Places of the East. My search, however, was in vain; and I returned home more than ever convinced that the peculiar styles of our earliest works were elaborated in our own islands, and I now venture to assert that no monument or Art relic of a date previous to the ninth century can be produced in which they, and especially the spiral pattern, are introduced, the execution of which cannot be satisfactorily shown to have been dependent on the teaching of some of our missionaries.
