Collection(s)The library was established on the 31st of July 1798, upon the initiative of the Roman-Catholic Bishop of Transylvania Batthyani Ignac (1741 - 1798). The cultural heritage includes manuscripts and rare prints of high documentary, scientific and bibliophile worth. The library holds traditional mediaeval works, as well as complete editions of the works of Greek and Latin authors or of Italian, German and French humanists, in original or translations. The oldest incunabulum of the collection is Summa de casibus conscientiae by Astesanus de Ast (1466). Other valuable works are: Ovid, Epistulae heroides (1494), the first edition of the work of Homer (1488), "Aristophanus", "Comoediae" (1498), Aristotle, "Opera Graecae" (1495 - 1498). It includes an impressive collection of bibles (about 660 editions printed in 30 languages and dialects), the archive of the Roman-Catholic Clergy of Cluj-Mănăştur, bishops' letters, coins (ancient and mediaeval specimens, banknotes, medals), an ex-libris collection, as well as seals (pieces from the 18th - 19th centuries), ores, mollusks, scientific tools, clocks, religious art items, fabrics, pictures (portraits of some religious and princely personalities from mediaeval Transylvania), as well as a few prehistorical and ancient items. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.
