New Vatican Homepage

Literally within the past hour or so, the Vatican has rolled out a new look for its homepage. Here is a screenshot of the English site:

As you can see, the “hermeneutic of continuity” has been employed, so the new design has many similarities with the previous design. Among which – many will complain – is the continued use of that old parchment-look background, which has been a feature of the Vatican web site since the very beginning!

    Fancy! Yes, the old parchment does seem to be a matter of contention.

    I do wonder why the parchment is questionable – I kind of like it 🙂 but I do like to be different.
    They do have some work to do on the site – many of the links do not work. If you try to use them, click on the one you’re interested in, go to the address bar and simply delete the “index.htm” portion of address. I’m sure they’ll correct it shortly….
