Bookish history

See Albert Mohler's Books, Libraries, and the Ideal of Christian Scholarship for a look at how books used to be reserved for the rich and powerful, and how and why that changed.

In his post, he cites Megan Hale Williams' book, The Monk and the Book: Jerome and the Making of Christian Scholarship (University of Chicago Press, 2006), and provides some short excerpts.
