2014-01-18

Just recently, Pope Francis announced the names of the Catholic Church's 19 new cardinals. Web users wanting to learn more about this select group of prelates, now have a wealth of information at their fingertips.

Salvador Miranda, a professor at Florida International University created a very complete data base. It features not only the current cardinals, but goes back to the 5th Century.

Even though the page's design is simple, it's packed with information, available in both English and Spanish. Users can surf through date, classified by the date of the cardinals' appointment, or even what conclave they took part in.

There's also a biography, and pictures of modern-day cardinals to go along with each section. The site even features Vatican texts and documents that deal with cardinals or the making or cardinals.

With the information on the page, any person can become a true vaticanista, or Vatican expert. It can come in handy, especially as the College of Cardinals welcomes its newest members on February 22.
