“Many of these old Christian relics can only be reached by hiking and climbing to remote monasteries as roads are limited in these mountainous region,” the researchers told Naij.com. “The Garima Gospels have been kept high and dry, which has helped preserve them all these years and they are kept in the dark, so the colors look fresh.” Scientists say the ancient text dates back some 800 years before the King James Version, making it one of the oldest copies of the Bible.
