Strahov's theological library, designed by the architect G.-D. Orsi (1671-1679), contains more than 16,000 volumes under vaults decorated with frescoes and stuccoes that praise studies and books. The philosophical room, by I.-J. Palliardi, is much more classical (a century apart) and was designed with pre-existing furniture in mind. The famous ceiling fresco, which illustrates the history of mankind, is the last work of F. Maulbertsch.
