The Secret Archives… now open!

“I do not think that word means what you think it means.” The Vatican Secret Archives are now available online. Just go to the Vatican web site and click on the link under “Focus.”

Now of course, that they’re secret doesn’t mean that it contains classified documents or lists of the nefarious dealings. It means that they are closely held records, sometimes including sacramental or canonical dealings of the internal forum and that access to such information is severely restricted. Still, Secret Archives has a nice nefarious ring to it.

    So much for keeping to the subject.
