Benedictine work – a book as an iconic object in the Middle Ages

During the talk and art games, students will learn to write and decorate their own initials. Young students will work on desks modeled on medieval scriptoriums. They become familiar with new terms like manuscript, ink, tonsure, or with bird-feather writing technique. Taking the example of the Order of St. Benedict, the subject of transcribing and creating books by monks will be explained. Children will also hear various fun facts about the everyday life of monks.

The duration of the workshop: 1 time
Cost: entry ticket to the Inwałd Fortress + PLN 10 per person
