Quoting: Coxe on the Stiftsbibliothek St. Gallen

The library belonging to the abbey is very numerous and well arranged ; and, among a number of monkish manuscripts contains several of the classic writers, which enganged my chief attention. To this library we owe Petronius Arbiter, Silius Italicus, Valerius Flaccus, and Quintilian, copies of which were found in 1413 : it was formerly very rich in curious manuscripts ; but several being borrowed, during the council of Constance, by the cardinals and bishops, were never returned.
