Notes and messages on Roman wax tablet
The Roman wax tablets are made in Germany, in pure handwork. A written wax tablet can be written on again and again and is written on and smoothed out again with the stylus forged from bronze, brass or iron. The Roman wax tablet was used for notes and messages until the high Middle Ages.
If you want to follow in the footsteps of antiquity in writing, go for the wax tablet with stylus! The advantage over our modern paper is simple: On the wax writing sheet is nothing for eternity! Because the Roman wax tablet (lat. cera, tabula) is coated with beeswax. Wax tablets like this one from the Roman store under the category stationery, were used until the Middle Ages and written on with a stylus (lat. stilus) by carving the letters into the wax layer. Tabula ceratae is the name of the Roman wax tablet books, which have been found in large numbers. And that's where the term "tabula rasa" comes from! Which means nothing more than smoothing the wax layer with the back of the stylus. Literally, it means "erased tablet" - which can be described anew.
On the trail of ancient penmanship with wax tablet and stylus
Many of the achievements of antiquity have survived to the present day - they have stood the test of time. Some have been refined or adapted to modern needs. For example, although the ancient Greeks did not yet have a computer, the wax tablet can justifiably be called the forerunner of today's calculator - or even more so of the laptop, because you could take it with you everywhere!
School lessons in Roman times would also have been unthinkable without the Roman wax tablet. The inside pages of the beech board books are chiseled out. Only a margin remains on the outer sides. Then the writing tablets are filled with real beeswax, which can be easily written on and smoothed with a stylus. The wax tablet books are perfect for scribbling Roman numerals and Latin homework - makes the tasks so much fun!
