The Vatican Apostolic Library 2019 pocket planner is dedicated to languages, alphabets and scripts.
Many languages, many scripts and many phenomena of heterography are evidenced in documents that are currently preserved in the Vatican Apostolic Library and eloquent images of these are hereby presented.
The calendar cover page reproduces the binding of the ancient volume Sette Alphabeti di Varie Lettere Formati con Ragion Geometrica da Ferdinando Ruano, Anno 1584.
From the introduction by H.E. Msgr. José Tolentino de Mendonça, O.P., Librarian of Holy Roman Church:
"As it now tradition, a very brief quotation accompanies each week of the Agenda; for 2019, we propose the opening phrase of the Our Father. It is restated first in Latin, and little by little in 52 other languages chosen from among the various hundreds present in our Library."
