Strahov Monastery: lecture by Irena Murray-Žantovská

Dr Irena Murray-Žantovská, an eminent architectural historian, will give a lecture on the Strahov Monastery. The Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov is one of the oldest monasteries of the Premonstratensian Order in the world. It has been a working monastery practically ever since it was founded in 1143. The famous Strahov Library and the reopened Strahov Picture Gallery are cultural institutions proving to the world that the Strahov Premonstratensians have always cared for the development of culture and education. The full title of the lecture is 'The Building and the Book: The Strahov Monastery and the Premonstratensian Legacy in the Czech Lands'.
