Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Monasticon, Vol. 1: An Account (Based on Spottiswoode's) Of All the Abbeys, Priories, Collegiate Churches, and Hospitals in Scotland, at the Reformation

So strong is Prejudice, that a Monk is pretty generally supposed to have been fat, lazy, sensual, and ignorant. The popular voice supplies him with a plentiful provision of the good things of this life, upon which he battened in his Cell like a hog in his stye - his sole occupation being to recite his Breviary, which he could rarely translate or even read with decent accuracy. In rare instances he was of a different type - he was ascetic and intellectual but in this case he devoted all his energies to dark and mysterious plots in favour of his Order. Monk and Friar hated enlighten ment, which they instinctively felt would be fatal to their Craft. So, they took possession of learning, and imprisoned it in the Cloister; and with malice prepense they delayed for hundreds of years the invention of Printing. When at last, in spite of them, Books began to circulate, they added the ferocity of tigers to their other amiable qualities, and they persecuted to the death every one that dared to dream of striking off the fetters from the human mind. Such is the belief of those who love ivy-mantled Abbeys, but who detest those who once were their inmates.
