The Vatican Secret Archive: A Treasure Trove of Knowledge and Wisdom

A study convention on the Holy See’s religious archives’ holdings opens today in the Vatican. Since the Vatican Secret Archives were founded 400 years ago, they have grown four hundred times bigger, and have gone from covering a storage space of 200 linear metres in 1612 to 84 kilometres today.
