Writing and spirituality tracing the history of the Camaldolese Order in Ravenna, from its origins through to the 16th century. To celebrate 1000 years since the Foundation of the Camaldolese Order by Ravenna-born St. Romuald, and as part of a series of events being held in various important Camaldolese venues, the Classense Library will present an exhibition of books that studies the history of the Camaldolese Abbey in Classe, one of the Order's most important buildings, between the 13th and 16th centuries.
In collaboration with Camaldoli and the Ravenna State Archive, this exhibition will allow visitors to admire precious manuscripts and printed books, carvings, documents, relics, reports of important events and a collection of documents relating to the monastic life of reading, meditation, prayer and study
