• It's certainly likely some of the contents might fall into this category - not least because of the Vatican's role in creating and maintaining the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, the list of books which Catholics aren't supposed to read. However, there's no evidence that, as some of claimed, the Vatican possesses the largest collection of pornography in the world.
  • This would depend on how you define art and pornography. What some view as smut others view as art. A visit to the Vatican museums may leave you with a favourable impression. I've been to the Vatican and its museums a few times; it’s an experience beyond words. The art in Italy is exquisite. The Vatican does have a few mildly erotic books. Some from the classic era include a copy of Ovid's The Art of Love, which is filled with Latin poetry, and Aristophanes' Lysistrata with Greek drama. There’s some very explicit erotic art, including drawings by Michelangelo depicting various phallic fantasies. There’s also a famous collection of erotic frescoes designed by Raphael in 1516 and executed by his students in the bathroom of a certain Cardinal Bibbiena. The frescoes, which are badly deteriorated today, consist of scenes involving Venus and Cupid, Cupid and Psyche, and Vulcan and Pallas.
  • hahahaha thats funny. Altar boys maybe

  • It would probably depend on how you define pornographic. Some people think that the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is pornographic. With love in Christ.
  • Yes. The Jesuits are the editors of Hustler magazine. My 2 cents.
