Marcel Thomas
"In the 700 years between the Fall of Rome and the 12th century, it was the monasteries and other ecclesiastical establishments associated with them which enjoyed an almost complete monopoly of book production and so of book culture."
In my opinion he talks about how the church was the only source of information. If u couldn't read or afford a book you had to go to the church in order to retrieve information. And he also states that they enjoyed that certain power, how they created their own culture.

An important historical fact.

Try to post about the current week's assigned readings. The Marcel Thomas reading is important but it is from the beginning of the semester.
