'Greetings from the dead,' declares Maxwell Broadbent in the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb robber, Broadbent accumulated over half a billion dollars' worth of priceless art, gems and artefacts before vanishing - along with his entire collection - from his mansion in New Mexico. As a final challenge to his three sons, Broadbent has buried himself and his treasure somewhere in the world, hidden away like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. If the sons wish to claim their fabulous inheritance, they must find their father's carefully concealed tomb. The race is on, but among the treasures is an ancient Mayan codex that may hold a secret far more important than the wealth of riches around it, and the brothers aren't the only ones in pursuit.

How the Codex was Found: A Narrative of Two Visits to Sinai From Mrs. Lewis's Journals, 1892 1893 is a charming description of two sisters' visits to Mount Sinai on a scholarly expedition to study a Syriac version of the Gospels in the Bible. Taken from the journals of the author's twin sister, Margaret Gibson describes in detail two trips to Sinai as well as their findings. Written to quickly and simply record and publicize their journey as an effort to correct erroneous news reports, this easy-to-follow narrative is for anyone curious about Biblical research in the 19th century or the expeditions of these extraordinary twins. MARGARET DUNLOP GIBSON (1843 1920) was twin sister to AGNES SMITH LEWIS (1843 1926); the Semitic scholars were often referred to as the Westminster sisters for their donations to the Presbyterian Church of England and especially Westminster College, Cambridge. Between the two of them, the women learned 12 languages and became pioneers in their field. While both sisters traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East, as well as to Mount Sinai to study the earliest Syriac version of the Gospels, most of their written works are attributed to Agnes. The only written work Margaret authored was How the Codex was Found, a narrative from Agnes's journals of their two trips to Mount Sinai.

This book contains the proceedings from the Codex Judas Congress held to discuss the newly-restored Tchacos Codex.

Who would never stop loving you, no matter the fortune and fame? A love of nothing to lose and everything to gain. A love that fuels each other's fire for each other's flame. See, I loved this girl who was the star in my eye ... Adolescence is a time of change, discovery, and uncertainty. Dekota Bostic debuts his first collection of poetry infused with poignant reflections of a teenager on a distinctive journey to find his identity, resolve dilemmas, and realize love. Bostic-who has experienced both dark and joyful moments in his young life-uses vivid details, energy, and passion in his poems to reveal his questions about the world, a variety of experiences, and lessons learned. As he leads others through his emotions and thoughts about everyday life, faith, loyalty, relationships, and society, Bostic provides a compelling glimpse into how teenagers view the world, answer their questions, and make connections.

In The Codex, published in 1954, C.H. Roberts studied the process by which in the early centuries of our era the roll as the vehicle for literature was replaced by the codex, which has remained the format of the book ever since. New evidence that has accumulated in the last thirty years has set some of the problems in a new light and in this book, published here for the first time in paperback, the authors re-examine these and offer a different explanation for the remarkable part in the transformation played by the early Church.

The year is 1932. In Rome, the Fascist leader Benito Mussolini unveils a giant obelisk of white marble, bearing the Latin inscription MVSSOLINI DVX. Invisible to the cheering crowds, a metal box lies immured in the obelisk's base. It contains a few gold coins and, written on a piece of parchment, a Latin text: the Codex fori Mussolini. What does this text say? Why was it buried there? And why was it written in Latin? The Codex, composed by the classical scholar Aurelio Giuseppe Amatucci (1867-1960), presents a carefully constructed account of the rise of Italian Fascism and its leader, Benito Mussolini. Though written in the language of Roman antiquity, the Codex was supposed to reach audiences in the distant future. Placed under the obelisk with future excavation and rediscovery in mind, the Latin text was an attempt at directing the future reception of Italian Fascism. This book renders the Codex accessible to scholars and students of different disciplines, offering a thorough and wide-ranging introduction, a clear translation, and a commentary elucidating the text's rhetorical strategies, historical background, and specifics of phrasing and reference. As the first detailed study of a Fascist Latin text, it also throws new light on the important role of the Latin language in Italian Fascist culture.

Because they list all the public holidays and pagan festivals of the age, calendars provide unique insights into the culture and everyday life of ancient Rome. The Codex-Calendar of 354 miraculously survived the Fall of Rome. Although it was subsequently lost, the copies made in the Renaissance remain invaluable documents of Roman society and religion in the years between Constantine's conversion and the fall of the Western Empire. In this richly illustrated book, Michele Renee Salzman establishes that the traditions of Roman art and literature were still very much alive in the mid-fourth century. Going beyond this analysis of precedents and genre, Salzman also studies the Calendar of 354 as a reflection of the world that produced and used it. Her work reveals the continuing importance of pagan festivals and cults in the Christian era and highlights the rise of a respectable aristocratic Christianity that combined pagan and Christian practices. Salzman stresses the key role of the Christian emperors and imperial institutions in supporting pagan rituals. Such policies of accomodation and assimilation resulted in a gradual and relatively peaceful transformation of Rome from a pagan to a Christian capital.
