VATICAN CITY, SEP 22, 2004 (VIS) - The Holy See will once again participate in the celebrations of the European Patrimony Days, an initiative of the Council of Europe in which more than 40 countries on the continent take part. The celebrations this year will take place on Sunday, September 26 on the theme "Patrimonies from Afar. Patrimonies from Others."

  The Pontifical Commission for the Cultural Patrimony of the Church, the Vatican Museums and the Pontifical Commission of Sacred Archeology will collaborate in this event. On September 26, entrance to the Vatican Museums is free. A small exhibit in the Asian section of the Missionary-Ethnological Museum, currently closed for restoration, will be opened for one day only. It is entitled "The Missionary-Ethnological Museum Open for Restoration: A look at the gates of Asia."

 All catacombs in Rome that are normally open to the public will also be free of charge. The San Callisto Catacombs on the  Old Appian Way will inaugurate an exhibit entitled "At the origins of the Eucharist: Images and Signs between East and West."
