Propaganda Fide opens 'Missionary Museum'

Catholic World News - December 09, 2010

The Vatican’s Congregation for Evangelization, also known as Propaganda Fide, is opening a new Missionary Museum,

The museum, based in the same building that has been Propaganda Fide headquarters for nearly 400 years, features the Chapel of the Magi, originally designed by Bernini but razed and rebuilt in the 1660s. The museum also includes tens of thousands of archival photos showing missionaries at work; the Barberini Library with portraits of famous students of the Propaganda Fide College; and the Newman Chapel, dedicated to Blessed John Henry Newman, who lived and worked there after his conversion.
