Musical Monuments from Medieval Meath.
Records of Meath Archaeological and Historical Society, X1X.
The most common figure representing musical performance in
medieval religious iconography is King David, Old Testament
prophet, musician, and author of the Psalms. His appearance in
Insular art emerged in the eighth century as the scope of the
iconographic programme was beginning to widen. At this time Eastern
Christian influences were strongest, as witness, for example, the Book
of Kells (8thlgth century, which may have been produced on Iona), and
Mercian stone sculpture (see Henderson 1986: 101).
