In the XII Century, there was a mutation in the reading way, when the lectio-divina – practiced in the monasteries- turned to lectio scholastica –which was organized to serve better to the logic, analytic and academic thought. In a similar way, we nowadays witness the breakdown of a paradigm on reading; the book, today, is no longer a cult object, screen has taken its place. Reading process has changed, analytic reading is being replaced by a hypertextual reading, the text is read as segments of independent information in a new writing space: the screen.
