Book of Henrykow.

The Book of Henryków is a unique source of knowledge about the cultural exchange process which in the High Middle Ages strongly influenced the shape of the future world. Descriptions reflecting the processes of technology and knowledge transfer of significance extending beyond the regional boundaries were weaved into a portrayal of a Silesian Cistercian monastery settling in a new cultural environment.
