Good quiz. Cellarer is misspelled and you should accept simply “manuscript.”
May 4, 2021
Or at least "illuminated manuscript", which is the far more common term.

Seconding this, was very surprised to see "illuminated manuscript" not accepted.
May 8, 2021
Thanks for the comments everyone. Fixed "cellarer" and "illuminated manuscript". Also decided to add "frater" as a type-in for the dining room hint.

Could you also accept or ask "ascetic" for the austere, Hermit lifestyle one?
Aug 21, 2022
I think it's close but while ascetics practice self-denial, it doesn't necessarily have to be a solitary existence apart from society. That's what I was looking for with "hermit".
