Historic Home - No attic vents

I have restored an old 1917 brick house and I converted the attic space into a bedroom. Due to the age of the house, the roof/attic has no obvious venting. I have read some conflicting advice, so I would like to know A) should I install venting to cool and dehumidy the remaining attic space that surrrounds the new bedroom B) if the answer is yes, what is the best method, i.e soffitt venting, etc.

I had read many negative articles about powered vents, so I am leaning towards passive venting at this point. Any advice would be appreciated.

This is an easy to read lecture on Ventilation.
