So today I was reading some news on Yahoo and saw an interesting article about the Vatican library reopening after three years of restoration. I read along and realized just how beautiful this place really is. Apparently it took them three years and nine million euros to give it a face lift. It also has the oldest known complete bible that dates to about 325. They have installed climate controlled rooms and brand new security systems to ensure the safety of the ancient manuscripts it houses. It will reopen on September 20, 2010. Here are a few pictures of the Vatican library.
