The Casanatense Library was founded by the Dominicans of the Monastery of Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome and opened to the general public, according to the will of Cardinal Girolamo Casanate. In order to contain the Library collection the Friars built a new architectural structure in the area of the monastery cloister. The Salone (hall) was probably designed by the well-known Roman architect Carlo Fontana, but it was finally realised by Antonio Maria Borioni. The Library was already opened on November 3rd, 1701, only one year after Cardinal Casanate's death. The first nucleum of the Library was The Library was linked to the most important european book commerce centres, and it was both interested in modern production and antique books, with the aim of being an encyclopaedic library. The acquisitions regarded not only the traditional religious and theological arguments, but also the roman law, economy, and history of the city of Rome. It excelled among the roman libraries both for the bright policy of acquisitions and for the expert bibliotheconomical and catalographical activity, mainly due to the figure of Father Audiffredi (1714-1794).In 1873 the Italian Government extended to Rome the law on the suppression of religious houses. According to that law, the legal title of the Casanatense was forfeited to the State. The Dominicans started legal proceedings against the Italian Government, which lasted till 1884, when they finally lost the property of the Library forever.

Hi Robert I just happened to wander on here today and was pleased to see thta you had organised the installation of the Paypal Donate button application I was on my firefox browser and couldnt see the button when I clicked on the link to it. Only a share button which didnt do anything. I had to go into another browser "safari" and then it was fine. Just thought you might like to know about this. I hope the money builds up fairly quickly. Best wishes
It would be great to annonce it as an event- might be a bit late now- plus I'm not the most technically minded person- so not sure how to do that. Also I think I just found a virus in my computer - so by the time I work that our- it will be all over.
Thank you and may be once I do the follow up 6 weeks course in a few weeks - I'll ask for help listing it
