A working monastery since it was founded in 1143, The Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov is one of the oldest monasteries of the Premonstratensian Order in the world. 80 members currently reside at the abbey.
The main halls of the current library were built in 1671 (Theological Hall) and 1783 (Philosophical Hall). In the Theological Hall there are gilded wooded carved decorations with wooden cartouches above the shelves to indicate the type of literature stored below. The Philosophical Hall has hidden spiral staircases, masked with false book spines, leading up to the corners of the gallery.
