Codex Climaci Rescriptus
This is one of the earliest near-complete Bibles in the world and is written in Christian Palestinian Aramaic, a language related to Jesus’ household language. This is a truly extraordinary piece due to the fact that this important text might have been lost forever had it not been found buried under later monastic works written on top!
