Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana

A large collection of manuscripts and incunables from the Vatican Library (Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, BAV) is being digitized and made available online. They can be found in the section ‘Materiali digitalizzati.’

The number of digitized works is expanding rapidly. In November 2014, almost 1300 manuscripts and over 600 incunables were available online. These works came originally from various parts of Europe and from various centuries.

Both manuscripts and incunables are sorted according to their call number. For each work it is possible to go through its pages, or to jump directly to a specific page. Zoom options are available. The images can be downloaded as PDF files.
