The monks' way of life - trying to bring humanity forward into a new age by bringing the Bible to the people - is threatened by crippling fear, represented by the Vikings. Another threat is the specific fear of death, represented by Crom Cruach. In the end, humanity as a whole stops living in fear and moves into a new age. Those who disgree with Chrstianity are right in a way; the process is ongoing and should not stop at any one place, be it paganism, Christianity or anything else.

[[WMG: Cellach was a monk at Iona once.]]
It's very evident Cellach and Aidan know each other. Aidan makes several references to what Cellach was like in the past ("You were always good at the old drawing, Cellach." "That is something the Abbot knew a long time ago.") As well, Cellach easily recognizes Aidan upon his arrival. Aidan didn't come to Kells for the safety of the wall - he's clear in his belief it won't work. He came because he knew - or thought - he'd find a friendly face there. Cellach, too, seems to have experience with Iona ("But the Abbot says islands are too easy to attack!") and may have begun developing his fear of outsider attacks even before he rescued Brendan from the Viking raiders.

Aidan is the Perfect "Illuminator". Is more evidence necessary?

** This might have been hinted at. Aidan's death is represented by his footprints in the sand being washed away by the tide. Whose footprints are furthers away from the water?

In the comic prologue that reveals Brendan and abbot Cellach's back stories. When Cellach flees from the vikings while carrying Brendan, there is a scene where he jumps into the water. in this scene baby Brendan is looking at a white fish with green eyes. since Aisling has the ability to change form and she said at some point that she was a fish or something there's no reason why the fish can't be her.

** She's not really long-lived, she could have only been a year old when the film begins and cats can live as long as 20 years.

Everything bad that happens can be attributed at least somewhat to the book. Brenden risks his life multiple times for the book, at least one of which was completely unnecessary (they could have sent someone armed who knew their way around for the berries). The Abbot, who's barely seen the book, does everything he can to protect Brenden. Aidan, who has written much of the book, couldn't seem to care less. Iona, where the book had been for the most time, never did much in the way of defenses. Kells had walls, but the door wasn't strong enough to hold the Vikings out. Possibly because people were working on the book, rather than on strengthening the walls, like the Abbot wanted to do. After Brendan gets the replacement crystal, he never sees Aisling again.

And of course, [[spoiler: the book was written by looking through the eye of a dark god]]. I'd consider that a bad sign.

** The Book of Kells really exists you know, and considering that (as stated above) it is a Bible, specifically containing the four Gospels of the New Testament, calling it evil would be offensive to certain cultures.

It seems possible to me, she could just be [[ModeLock Mode Locked]] like Aisling [[spoiler: near the end of the movie]]. She's also way too smart to just be a normal cat, there has to be some magic there.
