Scriptorium

We know that scripture is the ability to manually signify whole words or voices with visible, commonly used characters, to communicate to others, or to remind them of them. Letter is a graphic representation of the language. Pre-historical drawings in caves tell how old the letter is. The earliest types of “letters” were bumps or knots. We are still knitting a node today to remind us of something. Later, there were drawings, stone petroglyphs and drawings of objects that reminded of what they wanted to mark, ie, a pictograph. Today we are writing on paper or plant matter.
The Writing House is a special indoor room, an institution for itself and a rather complex unit. The Writers do all the writing jobs in the clerks. The writers receive and review the written and other documents, perform documentary de-writing, scheduling, rewriting, uploading, enrollment into appropriate records. Also, one of the most important tasks of all writers is archiving or keeping all recorded documents, books, manuals, or their scripts. Scrapbook is an integral part of every office, which keeps and issues written documents and other written material. In the letterbox the procedure for separating the postponed documentation (material) is done after the expiry of the prescribed deadline. The extradition is done for destruction, lending or surrender to the relevant archive. All written documents are writers work. The documents are written, copied, drawn, photographed, printed, photographed, magnetic, optical, electronic or any other data. Each clerk in the scriptorium is working daily with writings or acts. The file is a set of written contributions and other documents relating to the same subject or the same question.
The clergyman in ancient times was usually a male occupation. The clerk had his own work desk, his uniform, writing paper, and a pencil. In that old age, when you rarely knew how to write, the scribe would help you write a letter, claim, or request, with reimbursement. Over time, libraries and monasteries devoted themselves to translating and re-writing books. Thus, before the appearance of the press, the libraries were the place where literature was born.
