Vatican throws light on history as it opens secret archives

As the confidential correspondence of popes, princes and potentates, the Vatican Secret Archives have been jealously guarded for centuries.

The papers are kept on 50 miles of shelves at the Vatican.

But now 100 of the most historically significant documents held by the Vatican's Secret Archives are to go on public display in Rome - the first and probably last time that they will leave the buttressed stone walls of the tiny city state.

The priceless documents span more than a millennium, from the 8th century to modern times, and feature a cast of historical characters ranging from the Knights Templar to Galileo, Martin Luther and Henry VIII.

They are normally kept in air-conditioned, climate-controlled rooms in the Vatican's Apostolic Palace, which boasts more than 50 miles of shelves, as well as in a high-security underground bunker.

Archivists have gathered them together for an unprecedented exhibition, to be held in Rome's Capitoline Museums, to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Secret Archives in their present form.

"It's an exceptional event," Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican's spokesman. "It's the first time that an exhibition of such significance has been organised. Never have so many documents from the Secret Archive been allowed to leave the Vatican."

Organisers of the exhibition said it will be "a unique and once-in-a-lifetime event recounting history through its sources."

Papal documents have been kept ever since the Church was founded, but the Secret Archives have occupied their present location only since 1612, when the repository was reorganised by Pope Paul V.

All the documents are stamped with the words 'Archivio Segreto Vaticano', although the organisers of the exhibition point out that the Latin word 'secretum' more accurately translates as 'private' - these are the private archives of the popes.

The exhibition, called "Lux in Arcana: The Vatican Secret Archives Revealed", runs from February to September 2012 in the Capitoline Museums.

 

In this news there is one part that says, “But now 100 of the most historically significant documents held by the Vatican's Secret Archives are to go on public display in Rome,” and that is most probably a straight forward lie, coming from the Vatican and stupidly and naively repeated by the media.

The purpose is probably exactly the other way round: to distract from the really most historically significant documents by exhibiting completely harmless documents.

The prophecies foretell the end of the great harlot Babylon and that might include the physical destruction of the Vatican.

It would be nice if this would exclude the Vatican Secret Archives and give the opportunity to find out what is really in these papers that are kept on 50 miles of shelves at the Vatican.

It would be nice for example to find all the letters written by Paul which were not included in the Bible because they strongly attacked the Catholic Church, like his letter to the Laodiceans.

Read all about this letter to the Laodiceans in The Man-Made Church: Meditation.

It would also not surprise me that there might be documents that actually give evidence that the Catholic Church organized an inquisition and persecuted Paul and killed him because he was the greatest enemy of them.

Just reading Paul’s letter to the Laodiceans gives the reader an idea of the things that were going on between Paul and the Catholic Church.

And this is just an example of things one could find there. The present scandal about the Catholic Church and especially its attempts to hide their hideous crimes gives an idea of things one could find there.

Another interesting thing about the destruction of the Vatican could be to see what is really underneath the dome of St Peter. May be there is not really the grave of Peter to be found but rather the place where they, the Catholics, killed him.
