Abbey Library of St.Gall
Abbey Library of St.Gall


A Baroque Universe - Religious Culture and Intellectual Life at the Abbey of St.Gallen
29 November 2017 until 11 March 2018 

The Abbey Library and the Cathedral of St.Gall are among the most exquisite historical buildings of Late Baroque architecture. In 2017, both these monuments are celebrating the 250th anniversary of their completion. 

In its winter exhibition, the Abbey Library will portray the religious and intellectual life at the Abbey of St.Gall during the 17th and 18th centuries. The focus will be pointed at the buildings constructed during this period, at the festival culture and the contemporary research of the library’s precious collection of manuscripts.

One of the showcases will contain a special display celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. These manuscripts and printings are important witnesses of the history of the German Bible.
