On 24 and 25 September, the state library centre of Rhineland-Palatinate has bought a 12th century manuscript as well as several printed works which were sold by the Cistercian Monastery of Himmerod of the Bernkastel-Wittlich district. The specimens had been part of the monastery’s book collection. Concerning these events, partly correct and partly distorted information were published in the internet before the auction and after, which also contained attacks on the state institutions involved. This article describes the events from the author’s point of view as an employee of the state library centre of Rhineland-Palatinate.
