jan 1, 150 - European monastic libraries

Description:

As European monastic communities were set up (from as early as the 2nd century ad), books were found to be essential to the spiritual life. The rule laid down for observance by several monastic orders enjoined the use of books: that of the Benedictine order, especially, recognized the importance of reading and study, making mention of a “library” and its use under the supervision of a precentor, one of whose duties was to issue the books and take daily inventory of them.
