These knots are most known for their use in the ornamentation of Christian monuments and manuscripts, such as the 8th-century St. Teilo Gospels, the Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels. Most are endless knots, and many are varieties of basket weave knots. The Triquetra is also known as the Trinity Knot and the Celtic Triangle.
