Holy See extends its resources by digital publication


The Vatican Library has many manuscripts that are priceless for scholars researching in various fields. It is great to hear via the New Liturgical Movement that another tranche of manuscripts has been put into the public domain. 256 digitalised manuscripts are now available online to anyone  in the world. These include the Sacramentarium Gregorianum and the Ordines Romani.

From an apologetic point of view, these initiatives are important in showing what the "Vatican" does with its "riches". Certainly there are many valuable resources held in the Vatican. If they were in private hands, they would probably not be made available to the public.
