The Vatican (Holy See) site (discussed in the January 12, 1996 Scout Report
) has recently been considerably upgraded. It is divided into six sections (Holy Father, Roman Curia, News Services, Vatican Museums, Jubilee 2000, and Archive). Much of the site is informational, but it also contains a growing list of documents. Under Holy Father, documents from Popes John Paul I and II are available at this time, including homilies, letters, messages, speeches, encyclicals, and biographies. The archives are highlighted by documents of the Second Vatican Council. The site is still under construction, so some links haven't been implemented as yet. Navigation can be confusing, and users should study the "How to Navigate the Internet Site section" before using the site. The site is searchable and is available in six languages, although specific documents may be available in fewer at this time. As the site grows, it has the potential to become a monumental repository of both religious and historic information.
