The Vatican Publishes eBooks

The Catholic Church is getting into digital publishing by releasing a new series of eBooks in Apple’s App Store.

The Vatican eBooks, which were formatted by Aptara, are an illustrated series of Pope Benedict’s weekly addresses from March 2006 to the present day. There are 13 eBooks in the series, each focusing on a prominent figure in the Church’s history.

Dev Ganesan, president and CEO of Aptara, stated: “The adoption of eBooks by an institution founded before Gutenberg represents a significant coming of age for publishing. The Vatican has a centuries old tradition of printing. So to be the first organization to help the Church embrace digital publishing is quite an honor.”
