The Dark Ages Began with Closing a Library . . .

Remember your book history course . . .?

And western cuture was saved by Irish monks and libraries outside of Europe. We didn’t suffer the consequences of Aztec, Inca and Mayan libraries when they were burned by the Conquistadors. Apparently only 4 books remain from those cultures.

I hope this shows up on a button and t-shirt at Zazzle soon!

    That’s true. Going back further in history: after the Alexandrian Library was destroyed around 415 the dark Middle Ages started.
