Vatican
  
The Holy See -
http://w2.vatican.va/content/vatican/en.html

This the Vatican's home page and is undoubtedly one of the most popular Catholic Web sites.  The old-fashioned word See in its title refers to the site or seat or centre of poser and authority in the Church.  Visitors are greeted with the Papal coat of arms and a picture of His Holiness Pope John Paul II.   

     Vatican Exhibit - http://sunsite.unc.edu/expo/vatican.exhibit/exhibit/Main_Hall.html

This the site of Rome Reborn:  The Vatican Library & Renaissance Culture, an exhibit at the Library of Congress.  It presents some 200 of the Vatican Library's most precious manuscripts, books, and maps, many of which played a key role in the humanist recovery of the classical heritage of Greece and Rome.
