Digital Papal Register

With the help of DFG funding, we have purchased digitised reproductions of the Vatican registers 1-545 from Pope John VIII (872-882) to Pope Paul II (1464-1471) and the Avignon registers from Pope Clement V (1305-1314) to Pope Clement VI (1342-1352), both of which are stored in the Archivio Apostolico Vaticano (previously known as the Archivio Segreto Vaticano) on CD-ROM/DVD . The copies of the papal registers are complete with all rubricellae, additional pages, indexes and end notes and are in high resolution quality.

In accordance with the strict licencing conditions of the Vatican Archivio Apostolico, the registers may be only be viewed on sight in the institute and usage requires written application. The discs may not be borrowed from the premises or copied; print copies of single pages may however be made.
