Calligraphy is an art that one could spend a lifetime mastering. Some people have. Monks reproducing The Bible by hand were calligraphists. They would spend decades "Doing the Lord's work."
Both China and Japan have integrated calligraphy into their cultures and handwritten languages. Again, Asian calligraphists could spend decades on their work, monks or not.
Once cursive writing is deleted from our society, calligraphists will be the only ones handwriting anymore.
