Georgia: Gospel manuscript can be added to the list of UNESCO heritage


The ancient Georgian manuscript can be added to the list of UNESCO heritage after the discovery made by experts from the National Archives, Christian Telegraph reports according to the Christian Megaportal

As a result of the work on the Gospel manuscript data renewal, the scientists were able to detect more ancient texts.

It turned out that the manuscript is a palimpsest - a monument of literature, in which the original text was erased and replaced with a new one. Each line in the Georgian manuscript was applied on top of an even more ancient inscription.

The scientists have determined that the oldest of these texts dates back to IX-X centuries.

At the moment, the manuscript is submitted for inscription to the UNESCO's "Memory of the World" International Register. It is a program for protection of the world's documentary heritage established in 1992.

The Gospel got to the Georgian National Museum in 1924 coming from the village Tortiza, Gori district (Shida Kartli region). It was done on parchment and decorated by an unknown before thumbnail. In the previous descriptions of this manuscript it is referred to as the gospel of the fourteenth century.
