principal library of the Apostolic See
the United Roman-Ruthenian Church
Pontifical Apostolic Library (Pontificia Bibliotheca Apostolica),
also known as the Pontifical Library, is the principle library of the
Apostolic See of theUnited Roman-Ruthenian Church. Housed
in several locations and working with various partners, it contains
works from ancient to modern, including rare copies, on subjects
including theology, history, canon law, music, heraldry, nobility and
government, and more. The legacy of the Pontifical Library dates to the early period of
the Church when ecclesiastical libraries bagan to be collected. These in turn grew
into various church libraries, some of which are still in existence today. The modern Pontifical
Library was formed during the reorganisation of patriarchal library collections in 2011.
Pontifical Library is also associated with the Stephenian Archives,
housing the records and artifacts of the Apostolic See.
