"a very important discovery, equal to the Naga Hammadi scrolls"

This find went public in February.

http://weekly.ahram.org.eg/2005/730/he1.htm

I have seen two sets of dates for these new documents ... the 3rd/4th and 6th centuries. These dates stem from the presumption that they were hidden during persecutions which would have happened at those times.

I think the picture on this page is from Nag Hammadi.

I contacted the Polish mission at the time and enquired about the contents of the find, but they told me that they were still conserving them and didn't know. Unfortunately a subsequent enquiry went unanswered.
