yy gk HEN you create a holy book you not only enlist in the
5 7-XYAQ devil's foes, but you practice, fighting the arch-fiend with
.V V - if
pen and ink." So said Cassiodorus in early Mediaeval
g For the first concern of the monastic scholars was to rescue
frmm threatened oblivion and loss the few ancient classics, especial-
ly writings of the saints. There was such a scarcity of writing
Xpcaqziiterial that the Mediaeval Copyists often had to erase the original
'T ts of useless parchments that they might use them the second
time. This gathering and copying of ancient manuscripts was ex-
tremely costly in time and in labor.
In the far Mediaeval days, while the monks were not actually
studying they were copying the few priceless books they owned.
It was the most sacred, loved duty, and the great monasteries
boasted that their Chronicles were much more complete, accurate,
and beautiful, than similar books completed at rival institutions.
Copying was a means of propitiating Heaven. St. Bernard said
emphatically, "Every word which you write is a blow which
smites the devil." The most skillful brothers would devote their
lives to the making of a book, creating it as permanent and as beau-
tiful as was in their power.
Parchment was costly. For a single book, scores of sheep must
die. In the cloisters a dozen copyists might be printing-pursuing
their tasks with infinite patience. Their question was not "How
fast?" but "How beautiful?" 'Al-Iow well?" for they are the chosen
in performing Ha work of God." They write in two columns,
initials generally in real gold, and put their whole heart and soul
into their productions, as the volumes will be memorials to their
faithfulness long after their earthly life is over. Some of the preci-
ous books were adorned with plates of silver and of carved ivory.
This was the spiritual and intellectual atmosphere that, year by
year, gave us the Mediaeval Library.
