The Vatican Library where there are hidden hundreds of information about Albania
The Vatican Library is one of the richest and oldest libraries of the civilized world. It is specialized in philological and historical fields, and certainly in theological, legal, and scientific ones. Numerous manuscripts of this library make it special for researchers from all over the world. In The Rules of this Library it is required that those who wish to use the Vatican Library to prove they are scientific researchers or professors of important scientific institutions. By accepting the card and signing the Registry of the Secretariat, everyone is obliged to follow the rules of the Apostolic Library of the Vatican. The library is open from September 15 to June 15. The study halls are open from 9 am until 5.30 pm, from Monday to Friday. To enter the study room there is some rules that are strictly followed by the service personnel. In this library, the first files are “Albania”. There are some who are filled with literature files related to our country. Among them there are many from the missionary sent by Pope Rome to inspect Catholic churches of Albanian lands, in different periods and centuries. These notes are sometimes invaluable to our music and music culture. The researchers’ difficulty lies in the fact that the literature we are talking about is in Latin, Italian, or in a language between Latin and Italian today, or in special dialects of various historical precipices. Up to date, our educational institutions have not thought or attempted to prepare various elements to be able to use this valuable cultural subject. The day that this problem will take the path of choice, will for sure be the day of great cultural turnaround for our country.
