In the center of the room are research items, like the 1678 compilation wheel, which is like a rotating shelf for scribes. They put texts on it if they wanted to copy or refer to them while working.

There are also a bunch of globes, which was the best way for 17th-century monks to study the planet at the time.


The room is deeply symbolic. There is a statue of Saint John the Evangelist, one of the writers of the Bible and the patron saint of authors, theologians, book sellers, and printers.

The library is housed in the Strahov Monastary, part of the historical Clementium building complex in Prague.The gorgeous frescoes on the ceiling are based on quotes from the Bible that are about acquiring wisdom and using knowledge and education to build upon faith.


Over 18, 000 volumes are stored in the Theological Hall, and the northern wall is composed entirely of Bibles or Bible parts in various languages.

It houses more than 42, 000 books — many of them rare — but it's also more than just about paper.

Sapporo Snow Festival (Yuki Matsuri)

This exuberant celebration of snow and ice has been held since 1950 in Sapporo, the capital city Hokkaido. The week's activities feature a colorful parade and competitive events in winter sports, as well as a display of colossal snow sculptures along the main street and in Odori Park. The sculptures are spectacular—intricately carved and often several stories high. About three weeks before the festival, a wooden frame is built and packed with snow; after the snow has hardened the frame is removed and the carving begins.
