SHARE Notre Dame to host rare Vatican Library artifacts May 8-22

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The University of Notre Dame will host an exhibition of manuscripts, printed books, maps and drawings from the Vatican Library beginning Sunday.

The exhibition, running through May 22 at the Snite Museum of Art, will include Galileo’s 1610 astronomical, “Sidereus Nuncius” — the first published scientific work based on observations made through a telescope.

The collection also will include a 16th-century Mass composed by Josquin des Préz that represents the introduction of movable type for printing music.

The exhibit is part of an agreement between Notre Dame and the Vatican Library that provides for cultural exchanges, joint research and conferences involving the two institutions.
