A plaque next to the painting:
The Medieval Scribe

Behind the monk is a scene of violent destruction, illustrating the great importance of the medieval scribes in preserving the texts of the past - and thereby the thought and very history of humankind - for future generations.

Someone better call Freedom From Religion Foundation, steeped in their scholarly expertise, to protect us from another one of these blatant Christian proselytizations!! My God, a public library! Is there no safe place for Free Thinking if not our public libraries!?!
