Archive for the ‘Library’ Category

I have added an exemplar of an english translation of the Symposium, an important text of the greek philosopher Plato. Why? The topic of the book is “Love”. Intellectuals and politicians have taken part to a dinner in the house of Agathon. After the meal, they start to drink wine. They decided that the wine will not be too strong (adding water) and that they will talk about love. Everyone, inclusive Socrates, pronounced a speech about love.

If you are interested, go in the Library and read! You can also find the text in the Gutenberg Project virtual library:

The Library

We have started to work in the Library of the Monastery. The aim of this Library is to show how the texts of the Antiquity were transmitted to the Middle Age, with the work of thousands of copyists.

We have installed a screen with a script, which give to the user the choice between several weblinks. People can find there ressources about medieval manuscripts.
