Description

A monk who was sitting at his desk in his study rises from his chair to write with a pair of compasses the Greek word Αναγκη on the wall facing him. Αναγκη is an equivalent of the Latin word fatum and means fate, or destiny, with a dismal hint. This picture is the opening illustration to Book 7.
