The Bible Hunter

In 1844, academic and fundamentalist Christian Constatin Tischendorf, driven by his obsession with the origins of the Bible, travelled to a remote monastery in the middle of the Sinai Desert, where he discovered the original manuscript in a basket of paper said to have been discarded by the monks and destined for the furnace.

Part travelogue, part historical study and part critique, this compelling and accessible study discusses the author's trip to Sinai in Tischendorf's footsteps, the history of the Bible and early Church, and the lives and liturgies of the monks, raising important questions about how - and in partcular where - the treasures of Antiquity are best displayed.

Jürgen Gottschlich is a German journalist. He co-founded the Taz newspaper in 1979 and in 1994 became editor-inchief of the Wochenpost.
