DESCRIPTION:
In "The Lost Gospel", Herb Krosney offers a rare view of the story behind a major archaeological discovery. An author and investigative reporter, Krosney conducted hundreds of interviews across three continents to provide the only complete account of the discovery of a 1,600-year-old papyrus book, or codex, containing a long-suppressed Gospel of Judas. Krosney provides stark details of this historic artifact's discovery, near destruction, recovery, and restoration. His story begins in the mid 1970s in a desert cave near El Minya, Egypt when local farmers stumble upon a leather-bound papyrus codex that had been hidden away in a crumbling limestone box for centuries. The farmers hope its valuable and sell it to an antiquities dealer in Cairo. The Cairo dealer, unable to read the ancient Coptic script of the codex pages, is unaware of the book's startling contents. He hopes to fetch a high price for what appears to be a very old manuscript in very good condition. From there the papyrus surfaces from time to time in the antiquities trade but no deals were struck. Only a handful of scholars saw the codex during these years and they were given only brief glimpses of its pages. This bizarre journey would take the document from Egypt to Europe to the United States where among other indignities it languished in a safe deposit box in Long Island, New York for sixteen years before being bought in 2000 by Zurich-based antiquities deal
