QuotationI am fascinated by [Edmond] Martène and [Ursin] Durand's Voyage Litteraire de Deux Benedictins [Paris, 1717]. It is the record of their journey around France in the early eighteenth century, collecting material for the Gallia Christiana, in the archives of the old monasteries. And there were hundreds of them.
