More About This episode

Half a century after Robert Curzon and Constantin von Tischendorf discovered highly controversial early texts of the Holy Scripture, new explorers unearthed even more spectacular treasures. Follow archaeologist Dr. Jeff Rose as he travels deep within Egypt's remote settlements on the trail of 19th and 20th century Bible Hunters. We'll meet daring twin sisters, two lucky young scholars, and one American millionaire, whose findings of early and missing Gospels transformed our understanding of Christianity's sacred texts.
