    What's the word?

    Hi all. Does anyone know the word for the design whereby the first letter of every page/paragraph is highly styled. Popularised by monks handwriting the Bible. Cheers, Harry.

    I think its illuminated too, but I just opened my Book of Kells & in the intro it refers to the entire page(s) as being illuminated.
