01 What are Cistercian numbers?

Cistercians are the monks and nuns who live their lives in the tradition of the founders of the Citeaux Monastery. The order was founded in the 11th century.

The order had developed its own way of writing numbers. Each numeral sign was composed of four superimposed elements for the thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. This can be used to generate number signs for numbers from 0 to 9999.
