Vatican Makes 4000 Ancient Religious Manuscripts Available

According to the International Business Times:

“The Vatican Apostolic Library is now digitising its valuable ancient religious manuscripts and putting them online via its website, available for the public to view for free, as well as turning to crowdfunding to help it complete its work.

The Vatican Library was founded in 1451 AD and holds over 80,000 manuscripts, prints, drawings, plates and incunabula (books printed prior to 1500 AD) written throughout history by people of different faiths from across the world.”

These holdings likely include numerous works of religio-magical significance of interest to students and practicioners of modern or mediaeval thaumaturgy. The Vatican Apostolic Library has put 4000 manuscripts online and its goal is to digitize an additional 76,000 to be included in its online archive.×1080
