Fulda Travel Tip:
The monastery of Fulda was a Benedictine abbey in Fulda, in the present-day German state of Hesse. It was founded in 12 March, 744 by Saint Sturm, a disciple of Saint Boniface, and became an eminent center of learning with a renowned scriptorium, and the predecessor of the Fulda diocese.
Library and manuscripts
The library held approximately 2000 manuscripts. It preserved works such as Tacitus' Annales, Ammianus Marcellinus' Res gestae, Codex Fuldensis, and the monastery is considered the cradle of Old High German literature. Its abundant records are conserved in the state archives at Marburg. The Fulda manuscripts are now widely dispersed, including those held at the Vatican library.
