It is not known when the first quills appeared, but it is known that some parts of the Dead Sea Scrolls were written with a quill in 2nd century BC. St. Isidore of Seville mentions them in the 7th century in his writings, and it is believed that quills then began to spread as a popular method of writing as better than reed pens. With quills, it was easy to write on parchment and vellum. They were also used with fine brushes to illustrate manuscripts with figures, decorations, and images and become more and more popular from the 15th century on, when writing and flourished writing started to spread through the western world. Many important documents were written and signed with quills like Magna Carta and the American Declaration of Independence. The popularity of quills lasted until metal pens entered mass production in the 19th century but they are still used today in some cases. For instance: 20 goose-quill pens are placed at the tables each day the U.S. Supreme Court is in session.
