Just thought I would post of few comments on one of my favorite books and the inspiration for the name Library Monk. Canticle tells the story of a post nuclear war world. People have turned against science and learning and life as reverted to a medieval existance. And as they did in the Middle Ages, Roman Catholic monks preserve what scraps of knowledge remain.
This book is not an light read as evidenced by this study guide. But it is a one of a kind work and a enjoyable read, especially for those with an interest in religion.
