Secret Writings In The Monastery

High-tech archivist Mike Toth tells Dick about a black-robed monk who came to see him and asked for figuring out the writings hidden underneath old manuscripts. The answer involved a trip to St. Catherine's Monastery in Egypt (pictured), the corners of the library there and old manuscripts with hidden layers of text. Read more about the monastery here, and about a forthcoming lecture Mike Toth will give in Washington D.C. here.
