A style of art, especially of manuscript illumination, developed in the monastic scriptoria of Ireland and the British Isles ca. 600–900 CE.  A distinctive feature of the Hiberno-Saxon style is the use of interlacing, zoomorphic forms (see animal style).  Also known as the Insular style (from Latin: insula, “island”).
