"Disiectarum bibliothecarum membra". The remains of the Polish Camaldolese book collections from the Bieniszew monastery: the path to the Jagiellonian Library
Languages of publication
The article contains a brief description of the latest project of the Jagiellonian Library, one of the oldest cultural institutions in Poland, a project that is an expression of concern for cultural heritage. The so-called Bieniszew collection is a collection of about 2,000 (mainly) early printed books, compiled in the Camaldolese Monastery in Bieniszew probably in the 1950s. The Jagiellonian Library, which has long been a repository and safe haven of a large book collection from the Camaldolese Monastery in Bielany, Cracow, has now acquired an exceptional opportunity to secure a collection of early printed books from Bieniszew. During an inspection of the collection, it turned out that the so-called Bieniszew collection had in fact been compiled from the remains of libraries of non-existent Camaldolese monasteries in Warsaw and the Wigry Island. In the article the author describes how the collection was transported, registered and secured in the Jagiellonian Library storeroom.
