Vatican, Apple team up to produce Pope's work in electronic formats

Catholic World News - August 24, 2012

The Vatican publishing house has reached agreement with Apple to make the works of Pope Benedict XVI available in electronic form, accessible to a variety of high-tech devices.

The Libreria Editrice Vaticana will work with Apple to produce eBooks and I-Tunes containing the Pope’s catechetical talks from his Wednesday public audiences. A series on “Prayer in the New Testament,” already available in print form, will soon be produced in electronic formats, richly illustrated with artwork from the Vatican collection.

The Pope’s works will eventually be available through computers, smart phones, and PDAs.

    That probably leaves out those of us who use Android phones.

    Since Apple has turned off and denied access for the Manhatten Declaration applications and documents in its iTunes/iPhone App Store, I wonder if these documents will be "abridged" versions which have been "cleansed" of material deemed "offensive" by sexual deviants.
