Vatican Art is now viewable online at the Vatican website. View the Sistine Chapel and Raphael's Rooms in all their glory (sort of).

Not that it helps us tell Robin Williams what any of it smells like.

Was it supposed to smell like something? I thought of that line while standing in the Sistine Chapel, and was slightly disappointed that I couldn't really smell anything other than sweaty tourists.

*grumble* Am I the only one who is getting about 50% grey squares instead of pictures when I go to zoom in? Insert Papal plug-in joke of choice here

It's about frickin' time. It always astounds me that the richest religion in the world hired what seems to be the world's slowest webmaster.

Nasty site. Crashed my browser. This is weird and ugly, but at least more user-friendly. Google image search will get you more usable images of all this stuff. Pretty good image quality at the Michelangelo gallery here. I'm still waiting to be convinced by the good people at vatican.va.
