Don’t you think that it is long overdue for the Vatican to perform a digital scan of all of its manuscripts? After all, the Vatican happens to be an organization, or body, if you will, that has a collection of one of the oldest, most comprehensive, and most well preserved collections of ancient texts worldwide. Thankfully, it seems that they are moving along with the times and seeing the role of technology in a new light, by digitizing the tens of thousands of the rarest and most impactful books throughout human history.
Apart from having rare manuscripts that were written by notable and obviously important Christian figures, they also happen to have a collection of rare Chinese scrolls that were collected by early papal explorers. In addition, do expect to see a reasonable number of working documents that have been confiscated from early scientists, as well as ancient, illustrated versions of non-Christian holy texts.
