Apocalypse of Peter Fragment Sells for 1.4 Million

Friday, September 29th, 2017

New York, NY- A recently discovered Syriac text, identified as a lost or alternative passage from the Apocalypse of Peter has sold at private auction for 1.4 Million dollars.  It is now in the ownership of a Charlotte, North Carolina megachurch, Blessed Hearts of Jesus Christ, and will be on display there until March 2018, after which it will be moved to their archives.

Blessed Hearts keeps a collection of rare biblical and apocryphal texts in their library, which may be studied by religious scholars with permission of their pastor and a donation to the church, and has gained both fame and notoriety recently for the money that they are spending to obtain and preserve these documents.
