Vatican Archives



If you saw the film Angels & Demons, this should spark your imagination the way it did mine.

There is an exhibition of priceless archives in Italy that have been stored away in the Vatican vault for centuries. One hundred historic documents are going to be on display at the Musei Capitolini in Rome until September, 9, 2012, and I can’t think of anything more interesting. The exhibit includes a letter written by Marie Antoinette and the judicial acts of the trial of Galileo. An up close look at some of these archives would probably provide fodder for several segments of the Library of Illumination. That makes me a motivated traveler.

Take a look:



I can’t think of a better way to while away a few hours…

It’s time to plan a ROAD TRIP!
