I visited the Biblioteca delle Oblate library while I was in Italy on a research project. The library was a valuable resource for my project, and I was glad to have been able to visit it. The library is a repository of valuable materials which are of interest to researchers and students of religious studies, and it is an important addition to the cultural heritage of Italy.
