Apostolic Vatican Library contains 1600000 publications (both modern and ancient), 8300 printed books (65 of them are printed on parchment), 150,000 volumes of manuscripts and archives, 300,000 coins and medals, and 100,000 prints. The legends say that in the library of the Roman Catholic Church, many secret rooms, which are known only to the initiated. Many of the Pope, his life being in the Vatican, did not even know of their existence. It is in these rooms are priceless manuscripts that shed light on the various mysteries of the universe.
Officially, the Vatican Library was founded June 15, 1475, after the publication of Pope Sixtus IV corresponding bull. However, it did not accurately reflect reality. By this time, the papal library already had a long and rich history. The Vatican is a collection of ancient manuscripts, which was collected predecessor Sixtus IV. They followed the tradition that appeared in IV century under Pope Damasus I and continued by Pope Boniface VIII, who created the first complete catalog at the time, as well as the real founder of the library by Pope Nicholas V, announced it publicly and left behind more than 1.5 thousand different manuscripts. Already in 1481 in the Vatican Library was 3.5 thousand original manuscripts bought by the papal nuncio in Europe.
The large amount of work has immortalized for posterity many copyists. At that time the collection is not only theological works and holy books, and classic works of Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Coptic, Syriac, and Arabic literature, philosophical treatises, books on history, law, architecture, music and art.
Heritage, which was collected by the head of the Roman Catholic Church, much filled up through acquiring, receiving a gift or for storage of whole libraries. So in the fall edition of the Vatican from a number of major European libraries, "Urbino", "Palatine", "Heidelberg" and others. In addition, the library is full of archives that have not been studied. There is a value in it and to which access can be obtained only in theory. For example, some of the manuscript of the famous Leonardo da Vinci, which has not yet been shown to the public. Why? There is an assumption that they contain something that would undermine the prestige of the church.
A particular puzzle library — this mysterious book of ancient Indians — Toltec. Known about these books is that they do exist. Everything else — this rumor, legend and conjecture. On the assumptions they have information about the missing gold of the Incas. Also states that it is in them contained reliable information about the visits of aliens on our planet in ancient times.
Also, many say that the Vatican Library has a copy of a single work of Cagliostro. There is a fragment of the text that describes the process of rejuvenation and regeneration of the body: "After drinking it, a man for three days, and it collapses. Having frequent seizures, convulsions, the body acts perspiration. After recovering from this condition in which a person, however, does not feel any pain at the thirty-sixth day he takes the third and last grain of the "Red Lion" (ie, an elixir), and then falls into a deep restful sleep, during which a person oblazit skin, teeth fall out, hair and nails, out of the bowels of the film … All that grows back for several days. On the morning of the fortieth day he leaves the room a new man, feeling complete rejuvenation … "
Although this description sounds fantastic, it is striking just repeat one little-known method of rejuvenation "Kaya Kappa", which has come down to us from ancient India. This secret course on the return of youth has passed 2 times Tapasvidzhi Indian who lived 185 years.
The first time he rejuvenated the method of "Kaya Kappa", reached the age of 90 years. An interesting fact is that his miraculous transformation as it took 40 days, with most of them, he had overslept. At the expiration of the forty days had grown new hair and teeth, and the body returned refreshed and rejuvenated.
The parallel with the work of Count Cagliostro is pretty obvious, so it is possible that the rumors of rejuvenating elixir is real.
Vatican Library serves as a magnet, but in order to uncover its many secrets, you need to work with its funds, and this is not easy. Readers access to many archives is severely restricted. Library is officially open to the scientific and research work, but every day it can get only 150 experts and scientists. With pace to study in the library will take 1,250 years of treasures.
