Synopsis

Vatican Archives An Inventory and Guide to Historical Documents of the Holy See by Francis X., Jr. (Director, Bentley Historical Library, and Professor of History and Library Studies, University of Mich Blouin

This work provides a comprehensive guide to the holdings of the Vatican Archives. Organized into related agency groups, Vatican Archives includes approximately 500 entries that describe the purpose and workings of each administrative agency of the Vatican, followed by a listing of the official records it produced; it is these administrative records that now constitute the archives. The work will serve as a research tool that provides a systematic and heretofore unavailable overview of the archives, enhancing and expediting access by scholars in a broad range of disciplines. _

Reviews

The Vatican Archives represent a resource of incomparable richness for the history of the papacy, of the countries with which the papacy has been in contact, and of the Roman Catholic Church generally. The appearance of a substantial new guide aiming to give a comprehensive account of the Vatican Archives as well as of papal archives housed outside the Vatican City is therefore a major event. * Journal of Ecclesiastical History * It represents by far the most detailed account that one can find in one place of the post-medieval holdings in the archives ... and it undoubtedly a useful work of reference. * Journal of Ecclesiastical History *
