Answer In Medieval times scribes, royals and nobles were the only ones who could read and write, so anything involving writing fell to them. Mostly, they recorded events that took place involving the king, sort of like a recording of events to prove it really happened. Also, they wrote of other important events. Scribes could be hired to write anything, such as a letter. They were very important in the Medieval times and were paid…
Professional writers are called scribes, but who they were depended on on what times you are asking about and where. In ancient Egypt, the scribes were important people who were held in high esteem. In ancient Rome, many scribes were slaves. In medieval Europe, most scribes were monks or nuns, but some were commercial writers for hire or private secretaries of rich people.
The scribes in Ancient Egypt were in the middle class. They would have lived in small but not tiny houses. Houses in Ancient Egypt were made of mudbricks. The houses of scribes were no exception. A scribe would probably have had a servant. Scribes were generally quite well paid, but his pay would have depended on whether he was sucessful and who he worked for.
No because they were higher than the other labourers. Strictly speaking, the Ancient Egyptian Scribes did pay taxes, it's just that the tax code called for scribes to be exempt from taxation. (If you don't pay, but have no actual taxes imposed, then you have paid 0.00 which is what is expected of you.)
The scribes, another group of officials, held a privileged position. They were Egypt's writers and record keepers. Scribes might work at the king's palace, travel with high officials, or serve as public letter writers or record keepers. They assisted the tax collectors in making careful records of what everyone owed and how they paid their taxes. By Valerie age 11
Medieval scribes were clerics, a word that came to be changed to clerks. They wore clothing similar to those of teachers, monks, or priests. That is to say the clothing was simple, somber, and neat. The cut would have been very conservative for the time and place, but that varied with time and place.
