Still an absolutely wonderful book. I could quote so many pieces of it (and probably will). It's what a dystopian, post-apocalyptic novel should be. ( )

This is an excellent book. I very much appreciated the struggle between having faith in protecting knowledge for later restoration vs using knowledge in the complete awareness that the knowledge may lead to an extinction level event. What are we? Are we only flesh and blood? Are more than that? Does our existence continue after death? If other life forms do not also continue after death than what is heaven? These are some of the question that come to mind for me. It was an interesting experience to read this book at the same time that I was reading [Physical Science in the Middle Ages] by [Edward Grant] and [Science and Religion: Some Historical Perspectives] by [John Hedley Brooke]. [Walter M. Miller Jr] certainly produced a future history that well portrayed what a 2nd medieval age might look like in a post-apocalyptic world. I highly recommend this book.

I like this rating system by ashleytylerjohn of LibraryThing (https://www.librarything.com/profile/ashleytylerjohn) that I have also adopted:
(Note: 5 stars = rare and amazing, 4 = quite good book, 3 = a decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful.) ( )

I still am not sure what to think of this book. I can't decide if I should be in despair for the repetitive stupidity of mankind, or if I should have hope that maybe humankind will stop being such idiots. The author mixes religion with secularism. There is humor and irony in the Sainthood of Leibowitz. There are no adequate way to describe this story, other than it follows the Monks of the Order of St. Leibowitz from near it's founding at an Abbey in Utah through to the interesting ending of this story. It was a hard book to read in that oftimes I was totally disgusted with humanity and those in power. I still don't know what to think. Even though it was written in 1959, the behavior of our governments and those wielding power have not changed. They are still power hungry morons not caring a bit about those who try to do right. ( )

A classic, and rightly so. Beautiful and melancholic writing on the end of the world and what comes next. ( )

I was probably expecting some more Dan Simmons esque weirdness, vs what I got a pretty bog-standard sci-fi morality play. ( )

a dedication is only
a scratch where it itches—
for ANNE, then
in whose bosom RACHEL lies
muselike
guiding my clumsy song
and giggling between the lines
—with blessings, Lass

Brother Francis Gerard of Utah might never have discovered the blessed documents, had it not been for the pilgrim with girded loins who appeared during that young novice's Lenten fast in the desert.

There were spaceships again in that century, and the ships were manned by fuzzy impossibilities that walked on two legs and sprouted tufts of hair in unlikely anatomical regions. They were a garrulous kind. They belonged to a race quite capable of admiring its own image in a mirror, and equally capable of cutting its own throat before the alter of some tribal god, such as the deity of Daily Shaving. It was a species which often considered itself to be, basically, a race of divinely inspired tool makers; any intelligent entity from Arcturus would instantly have perceived them to be, basically, a race of impassioned after-dinner speechmakers.
“The closer men came to perfecting for themselves a paradise, the more impatient they seemed to become with it, and with themselves as well. They made a garden of pleasure, and became progressively more miserable with it as it grew into richness and power and beauty; for then, perhaps, it was easier for them to see that something was missing in the garden, some tree or shrub that would not grow. When the world was in darkness and wretchedness, it could believe in perfection and yearn for it. But when the world became bright with reason and riches, it began to sense the narrowness of the needle’s eye, and that rankled for a world no longer willing to believe or yearn. Well, they were going to destroy it again, were they-this garden Earth, civilized and knowing, to be torn apart again that Man might hope again in wretched darkness.” (page 285)
Brother Francis was copying only the body of the text onto new parchment, leaving spaces for the splendid capitals and margins as wide as the text lines. Other craftsmen would fill in riots of colour around his simply inked copy and would construct the pictorial capitals.
Brother Francis found the finest available lambskin and spent several weeks of his spare time at curing it and stretching it and stoning it to a perfect surface, which he eventually bleached to a snowy whiteness.
