THE GARIMA GOSPELS -- Possibly The Earliest Illustrated Christian Manuscript -- Discovered in a remote Ethiopian monastery. Previously assumed to date from about 1100 CE. New radiocarbon dating conducted in Oxford suggests they were made between 330-650 CE. They may transform our knowledge about the development of illuminated manuscripts & throw new light on the spread of Christianity into sub-Saharan Africa. Preserved in an isolated monastery, set among mountains at 7,000 feet.
