The study discusses the administration of the library in the Benedictine monastery in Broumov during the 17th and 18th century. It deals with the so far not very broadly reflected normative delimitation of this area within the order and with its practical implementation and control. The Břevnov-Broumov Abbot is identified as the main person having influence on the library administration (and on the shape of the library). A substantial aspect of the Abbot’s supervision over the monastery library was its expansion that was done through an extensive network of buyers, agents and booksellers who covered all important “book” centers in the Central Europe (Prague, Vienna, Dresden, Leipzig, etc.). In addition to that, the study also outlines the system of various book collections within the monastery, the functioning of which still has to be researched.
