5. Lost languages were discovered at one of the oldest libraries in the world.
Saint Catherine’s Monastery, located in the shadow of Mount Sinai in Egypt, is a sacred Christian site home to one of the world’s oldest continuously used libraries.
Thousands of manuscripts and books are kept there — some of which contain hidden treasures.
I got to visit in 2009 and was stunned by the incredible library and their dedication to the upkeep of these truly ancient manuscripts.
Recently found were several intriguing manuscripts written in obscure languages that fell out of use many centuries ago.
Two of the erased texts, for instance, were inked in Caucasian Albanian, a language spoken by Christians in what is now Azerbaijan.
