Reconstructed in the late 1500s, the Library of Isotheos serves as the heart of Katadesis. In the 1800s, the extensive collection was divided into economics, world history, the arts, engineering, and the sciences, with each field housed in its library. The entire process took four decades to complete. The original library is now used for council meetings and ceremonial events, although certain ancient manuscripts remain within its confines.

The name Isotheos originates from ancient Greek, signifying “equal to the gods,” a phrase that likely alludes to the pursuit and acquisition of knowledge. However, interpretations vary, with some believing the reference is more literal. The original library is believed to have been constructed following the fall of the Library of Alexandria two thousand years ago, with many of the manuscripts it contains dating back even further.
