The Vatican Library

The only thing I watch on tv these days are Redskins' games.  But I do watch some 60 Minute videos on the computer.  The one above on the Vatican's library is amazing. It talks about this incredible depository which includes (and they show all of this) writings of Michelangelo, letters of Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn (complete w. love hearts), Columbus' best selling book, many colorful books hand made before the printing press, a map of the world 50 years before Columbus sailed to the US and more.
