Incunabulum refers to the books that were printed until the 31st of December 1500. Printing houses were founded all over in Europe, and their main customer was the Church, as there was always a need for missals, breviaries, and bibles. The humanists recognised the possibilities this new invention offered and they took advantage of it: ancient Roman and Greek works were published, the manuscripts that were lying for years in the libraries of the monasteries were suddenly read, and there was a need for researches in the field of textual criticism.

Our museum owns almost 120 incunabula that come from the Franciscan library from Şumuleu Ciuc.
