Bibliomaniacs - St. Columba

Columba of Ireland (521-597 CE). Columba was trained as a monastic scribe and is famous for establishing monasteries in Ireland and Scotland devoted to copying texts. Before leaving Ireland in exile in 563, he established monasteries in Derry, Durrow, and Kells.

The History of “Loving” to Read - The New Yorker

Almost all of the students were women (out of around a hundred people, only five or ten were men), and it was a hothouse of Jane Austen obsession. In the first lecture, the professor identified herself as a Janeite—a member of “the curious American cult of Jane Austen,” according to the BBC—and, when she asked if we were Janeites, too, scores of people raised their hands. The class, she reassured us, wouldn’t be wasted on Austen fanatics.

Colladon may have met Calvin, the leading reformer of Geneva, already during their years as students at the faculty of law in Orleans and Bourges. Germain, his older brother Leon, and the latter’s son Nicolas frequented the public Bible studies of the Company of Pastors on Friday mornings, as is testified by a list of witnesses for the prosecution in the case against the physician Jérome Bolsec.
