Parco Naturale Regionale Monti Simbruini

Erbario Sub imbribus

Characteristic herbs and plants of Monti Simbruini Regional Park selected from De Materia Medica by Andrea Mathioli (year 1544) preserved in Santa Scolastica Abbey

In the Library of Santa Scolastica Abbey there is a treasure of ancient books, of pages worn out by time and readings, caskets of ancient knowledge, shoulders of the giants on which we modern men are sitting now.
One of these books was written in 1544 by the doctor Andrea Mattioli, who translated De Materia Medica by Dioscorides from Greek, adding his own comments and considerations. An ancient work became in this way over 500 years ago a source of modern knowledge through the study and implementation of the knowledge. 500 years after, Monti Simbruini Regional Park transforms its natural beauties and great historical-artistic heritage into its strength, recovering this ancient knowledge preserved in the library of Santa Scolastica Abbey and making it accessible to everyone, focusing on the pages regarding the plants and medicinal herbs growing in the Park.
The people of Simbruini, even without reading Mattioli or Dioscorides, has always used these natural resources that have represented over the centuries source of health and sustenance.
