I can't recall the details, but I thought there was quite a bit in the Vatican's library that was strictly off limits to everyone but a few top men. (top men)

I have a feeling there are a lot of secrets the Vatican doesn't want people to know about.

+1 on the headline, submitter. :-)

30% of that is child porn, another 20% is accounting books for drug cartels, leaving a good 50% for church-related activities like correspondences with the Spanish Inquisition and the Nazis, internal power struggles, Youtube videos of popes doing the Harlem Shake, oh and lest we forget of course, the Bible.

I think so many people have had access for so long that it's all rather boring in reality. It's the oldest bureaucracy in European culture.

So now they're going to digitize the librarians as well as the altar boys.  Great.

Subby made me giggle like a little altar boy when the priest said he had a new puppy in his bedroom.

A married woman is having an affair. Whenever her lover comes over, she puts her nine year old son in the closet.
One day the woman hears a car in the driveway and puts her lover in the closet, as well. Inside the closet, the little boy says, "It sure is dark in here, isn't it?"
"Yes it is," the man replies.
"Do you wanna buy a baseball?" asks the little boy.
"No, thank you," the man replies.
"I think you do wanna buy a baseball," the little extortionist continues.
After considering the position he's in, the man says, "Fine. How much?"
"Twenty-five dollars," the little boy replies.
"TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS?!" the man repeats incredulously, but complies to protect his hidden position.
The following week, the lover is visiting the woman again when she hears a car in the driveway. Again, the woman places her lover in the closet with her little boy.
"It sure is dark in here, isn't it?" the little boy starts off.
"Yes it is," the man replies.
"Do you wanna buy a baseball glove?" the little boy asks.
Realizing his disadvantage, the hiding lover replies, "Sure. How much?"
"Fifty dollars," the boy replies and the transaction is completed.
The following weekend, the little boy's father says "Hey, son. Go get your ball and glove and we'll play some catch."
"I can't. I sold them," the little boy replies.
"How much did you get for them?" asks the father, expecting to hear the profit in terms of trading cards and candy.
"Seventy-five dollars," the little boy says.
"SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS?!? That's thievery! I'm taking you to the church right now. You are going to confess your sin and ask for forgiveness," the father says as he hauls the child away.
At the church, the little boy goes into the confessional, draws the curtain, sits down, and says, "It sure is dark in here, isn't it?"
"Don't you start that shiat in here," the priest says!

Despite what you've "learned" from movies, anyone can visit access the library provided they have credentials proving that they're doing legit research (as opposed to browsing the stacks).

Bend over, Vatican.  EMC is notorious in the Library world for giving away storage space to land huge accounts, being unable to handle their project, and then, once they're committed to it,  billing the living fark out of them for "migration services", professional services", development", etc.

On the other hand, it's nice to see the Chrch being the ones to get screwed fr a change.

Ummmm, no.  There are Secret Archives, indeed... but it's still not anything dramatic.  Mostly things like the proceedings from annulment cases (every one of them, ever, IIRC), which are nobody else's damn business.

Yeah, probably a good idea to take them at their word regarding that. It's not like they're known to lie and cover things up.

When i think vatican, i immediately think full transparency.

No, you're wrong.

The Secret Archives are available to the public.

People think the collection is more provocative than it is because of the word "secret." It means "private," as in the personal documents of church officials. It's where things like correspondences are kept.

Point taken, but seriously - what business doesn't have proprietary information?  I mean, Cthulhu knows I'm no friend of the Catholic Church, and I think religion in general is the world's largest ongoing con game, but it's their archive.  They can do what they want with it.
