There is a library with over 60,000 books. It is one of the most important church libraries in Germany. More than 10,000 of them were handwritten and printed before the eighteenth century, ancient editions, religious reform documents and the Lutheran version of the Bible. Very precious.
Located in the central area of St. Gallen, the pedestrian street is convenient for traffic. The cathedral is magnificent, the prison and the city hall are adjacent, the environment is beautiful and quiet. The slate floor is very clean. It's very friendly to meet visitors on the middle of the walk. A little farther away, it's a commercial and art street. It's worth seeing.
The St. Gallen Monastery Library is the most treasured of St. Gallen. It is located in the center of the German-speaking city of St. Gallen in northern Switzerland. The monastery library has a history of more than 800 years and has a collection of over 100,000 books. Because it contains hundreds of priceless parchment manuscripts from the 9th to 13th centuries A.D., it is one of the oldest libraries in Europe and has been awarded World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. The library is small, divided into two open floors, the whole building and St. Gallen Monastery, holy and solemn. The bookshelf is equipped with cages. Books displayed behind the cage are a national treasure. St. Gallen is not very big. Although there is public transport, it is better to walk to the monastery library.
The Library of St. Gallen Monastery is really beautiful. It is called the most beautiful library in the world. It feels very old. This library has a history of 800 years. It has a collection of 100,000 books and hundreds of priceless parchment manuscripts. It's really beautiful.
What impressed me most was this little St. Galleny, the little monastery library. Because most Swiss museums are free on Swiss pass, the library almost missed a 12-franc ticket. It is divided into two floors. Starting from the second floor, the Greek at the entrance says "the antidote of the soul" and the dark brown, time-baptized, all-wood structure, about 100 square meters in size (not confirmed), with wooden escalators leading to the second floor bookcase. Books are arranged alphabetically. The three-meter-diameter globe has medieval reverie and portraits of various constellations. What's more, there is a mummy in the corner of the library, and the atmosphere is suddenly weird.
Among the treasures of St. Gallen's Abbey Library is the Stiftsbibliothek next to the church. The monastery library has a history of 800 years. It has a collection of 100,000 books. There are hundreds of priceless parchment manuscripts, such as the oldest famous architectural drawings in the 9th century A.D. and it is one of the oldest libraries in Europe.
Access to the library requires tickets, a row of felt shoes are placed in the corridor, visitors need to wear shoes, this is to protect the library's delicate patterned wooden floor. The moment we dragged closer to the library, we were shocked. - A large number of books and beautiful collection room decoration make people stunned, but unfortunately the library does not allow photographs.
The main entrance is very insignificant. It seems to be with a school. The library is on the second floor. I don't know how big it is, but there is only one room open. There are no photographs and no Chinese explanations. There is a mummy more than 2,000 years ago. Five minutes into the mummy, the baby will come out, but there is nothing good to see. Swiss pass is free, if not 12 Swiss francs, it feels very worthless.
This is a city founded by missionaries. Like many European towns, churches are the tallest buildings and the core of the town, surrounded by radiation expansion. It may not be surprising that churches are everywhere in Europe. But the library of the monastery shocked me greatly. The exterior of the library is very ordinary, and it is very different from each other. Clean and tidy, as far as possible to maintain the original appearance, stipulate that luggage must be deposited, strictly prohibit photography, so that I can only share the most pale words with you. Changed slippers into the library, as if back to the Middle Ages, the collection of beautiful, intoxicating and suffocating, precision astronomical astronomy amazing wisdom of the ancient Europeans, with large and small letters drawn into the Holy image, making pages of sheepskin let me see the ancient Europeans here diligently reading and writing, the cover of the book is engraved with jewels, it seems very brilliant. There are handwritten versions of Buddhist scriptures and mummies, which show the blending of Chinese and Western cultures. This visit really shocked me. I deeply felt that I usually read too little and too little. It is really sad in such a spiritual country as China. In the future, I must read more to improve my self-cultivation. In the message book, write down solemnly: knowledge is sacred, visiting here is my life's honor! Cultural heritage deserves it!
Since the beginning of the 20th century, libraries have been set up, which contain many hand-copied ancient books over thousands of years ago. The location of Zang Shu can not be photographed in order to protect books more. They also need to step on the slippers provided by them before entering.
