Metal gurus

Earlier this year I ran an article about an enigmatic collection of lead books which, it was being argued, were ancient Jewish mystical texts.

Immediately, rival theories began to appear all over the media here and abroad that these were early Christian codices.

But the claims of antiquity began to be debunked on the blogs.

Further detective work done by scholars – see this and this - suggest that the metal mysteries, sadly, are simply fakes, as the Israel Antiquities Authority believed all along.
