Complete list of Vatican writings?


Does anyone know where I can find a list of all the publications made by the Vatican from Nicae(did I spell that right?) on?


I would assume at least in the Vatican Secret Archives, where the oldest documents are kept safe and protected from people and the wear-and-tear of the outside world.


Do they make copies?


Your talking about near a very huge library :slight_smile: Covering centuries…

Scholars are in the process of working through them…it is not like one person even knows what is all there.

PS And there would be I imagine various things from prior to that Council.


You can find a lot of important Vatican documents on their website,

The Council of Nicea (or Nicaea) was not held at the Vatican, but at the city of Nicaea in what is now Turkey.


Compiling such a list would be a monumental task, to put it mildly.

The Acta Apostolicae Sedis gives you everything the Church has published from 1909 to the present. But it's all in Latin. Each year gives about 1000 pages. And that's just 1 century out of 20.


Thank you the acts apostolica seems like what I am looking for.
