At the end of "Fahrenheit 451" we read that Montag has escaped from the firemen and the mechanical hounds.  He finds himself in the middle of a group of "book people."  Each person in the forest has committed to memory a specific book so that when the day arrived for the freedom of books, they would be able to re-write and share their book.  Montag became part of the "Holy Bible."  Montag was "Ecclesiastes" from the Old Testament.
