There are many examples of religious art in Ireland. High crosses are the earliest examples of this type of art in Ireland. Some of them show scenes from the Bible.

Ireland is famous for its beautiful medieval manuscripts, or books. These religious manuscripts were written out in artistic writing called 'calligraphy' by monks. They were decorated with Celtic designs, such as spirals, plants and animals. Gold and silver were also used in the decoration.

During the 19th century, artists did a lot of work for the Catholic Church. They were hired to decorate new churches. They designed stained glass windows and priests' dress.
