‘Handing down - organising - communicating’ Archive and library of Engelberg Abbey

The Constitutions of the Helvetic Benedictine Congregation of 1757 describe in detail the tasks and function of a monastery archive. The ‘Instructio’ not only assigns the archive the task of archiving documents for legal preservation, but also makes historical, artistic and scientific preservation a central task. The monastic archives can decide for themselves on the public nature of their archives. Their source material naturally provides information on monastic culture and church organisation. The baptism, marriage and death registers are also central sources for population history and family research. The monastery archivist Dr phil. Rolf De Kegel has been involved with the archives of the monastery for 33 years and has been the monastery archivist since 1998.

The monastery library has existed since the monastery was founded and has been preserved and expanded over the centuries. Its holdings also reflect the interests of the monks, who are active in science and art. Lic. theol. Fr Guido Muff has been working as the monastery librarian for 25 years. The library and the archive are institutions that each contribute in their own way to the transmission of cultural memory and knowledge. They overlap in their central tasks.
Embark on a historical journey and experience in a dialogue between Father Guido Muff and Rolf De Kegel how lively and far-reaching the cooperation between the archive and library is in projects.

The programme will be musically accompanied by the Abbey's student Noam Benjamin on the grand piano.

The programme concludes with an aperitif in the guest refectory. Cheers to the cultural summer!
