Time and time again, people refer to the Vatican Library having, as you put it, "miles of secret books and scrolls". What sort of secret books and
scrolls do you really expect to find?
Yes, there are books (it is a library after all) but keep in mind that the Catholic Church is, first and foremost, a religious organization. Again, I
say yes, there are books but many of these "secret" books are of a religious nature. Written by monks and priests and other religious, books that
have been kept "secret" have been done so because they might have deviated from the "official party line", so to speak, of the Church. Often the
deviation at fault might have some small heretical aspect which the Church has condemned and the book is locked away.
The vast majority of the books and scrolls in the Vatican Library would interest religious historians more than any conspiracy theorist. Also
remember that most of the material in this vast archive are of a religious nature and that these writings span nearly 2000 years. They would have no
real interest for a conspiracy theorist.
What writings that might be of interest would probably be more recent archived material -- the last hundred years or so. Material from the Nazi eras
and the Soviet Union would be the most interesting, I'm sure.
As far as being "locked away" , never to be seen again? Well, the Vatican Library is open to serious researchers; primarily historians,
philosophers and theologians.
