New Building For Oldest Christian Manuscripts
A two-story library and conservation facility has opened within the ancient Coptic monastery complex at Deir al-Surian in the Egyptian desert. The archives there "include the earliest dated Christian literary manuscript (AD411), the earliest dated Biblical manuscript (AD459) and the earliest dated Gospel manuscript (AD510)."
