Manuscripts From the Vatican Library Are Free Online

The Vatican Library is working on a digitization project that will make its archive of 82,000 ancient manuscripts available to the public for free. So far, it has digitized almost 4,500 documents, many of which are listed on its website. Monsignor Cesare Pasini writes, “Digitization of the 82,000 manuscripts is a task that Vatican Library has assumed for years now; and already we have established contact with cultural institutions and with companies that share and support our work. … [O]ur purpose is characterized by the willingness to draw up an overall project for the entire, huge range of our manuscripts, which could lead to 40 million digitized pages. …”

The library aims to complete the project in a minimum of 15 years at a cost of more than $63 million. The Digita Vaticana nonprofit organization is currently working on raising the necessary funds.
