This jewel encrusted book is teh Strahov Monastery's oldest and ggreatest trasure - hence in a sealed cabinet. Its a 9th century Strahov Gospel which came from the German school in Trier.

Other exhibits here include minute bibles - how on earth they read them is a mystery!
We quickly passed by the mottley collection of animal and bones - seemed a bit odd to have such a colllection here.
