Numerous diocesan and parish manuscripts dating back to the 15th century are now freely available online after the Malta Archdiocese of the Catholic Church launched its digital archive today.

The digital archive is the culmination of work which began in 1973, when archival collections started to be microfilmed.

The laborious process to transfer all microfilms to digital media started at the beginning of the year, and the digital archive was set up in collaboration with Exigy. The Curia bid for EU funds to help fund this project, but this bid proved to be unsuccessful.

Access to the archives, which are hosted on http://archives.maltadiocese.org, is free of charge, although registration is required. Downloading pages for printing, however costs €0.50 per page.
