Pope Francis has appointed Salesian Father Mauro Mantovani the next prefect of the Vatican Apostolic Library.
The Italian priest, 57, succeeds Father Cesare Pasini, who served as prefect from 2007 and recently turned 73 years old.
As prefect, Mantovani will help run the Vatican’s library alongside Archivist and Librarian Archbishop Angelo Vincenzo Zani, who was named to that role in September 2022.
Zani was formerly secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education.
