Very Interesting, but it makes me wonder if there is a CATHOLIC university with such expertise.

BYU sponsons several interesting linguistic publications — including the only big series of Left-page-original-language/Right-page-English-translation Arabic/English philosophy texts.
Part of the push is that they still BELIEVE in missions, so they have lots of committment to people learning languages there.
The other is that it’s simply a better university than it’s day-to-day reputation outside Utah might suggest.

When I was a graduate student four decades or so ago, St. Louis University had a (complete?) collection of the Vatican Library on microfilm. This was funded by the Knights of Columbus. Being a physicist and not a classicist, I never took any notice of it.

For anyone interested in the Vatican collection and its availability in the St Louis U Pius XII library – check out his website.
