Vatican To Open Secret Archives


September 18, 2006 -- The Vatican is to open its central files, known as the Secret Archives, and files of its Secretariat of State for the pontificate Pope Pius XI (1922-39) today.


The move is expected to give new insight into what the Catholic Church knew and did as Europe saw the rise of Nazism in Germany and the Spanish Civil War.
