Vatican Librarians


#1

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I couldn’t work out where it should go.

I am fascinated by history and books so I was reading about the Vatican library. I was wondering how the librarians were, and are, chosen? Are they from a certain religious order or are they all secular priests? Are all of the librarians priests? Are they all Italian?

There was an article about the Vatican Library in the January 3, 2011 issue of the New Yorker. You can read an abstract here: newyorker.com/reporting/2011/01/03/110103fa_fact_mendelsohn
