I have been arguing in another discussion List with members of a
modern essenes sect about the authenticity of their Twelve Holy
Gospel that supposedly contains sayings founded inside GTh
This is the main argument they use to give credibility to Gideon
Ouseley discovery in 1881. According their records this was held
before the known fragments of Thomas be discovered.
All the environment of this Ouseley discovery, as everybody
might know, suffers from symptoms of a big hoax but this special
point is a intriguing one.
Does anybody have information of GTh fragments founded before
1897 and before 1881 or has anybody some precise information
about this modern essenes claim?
Looking for information about at the Internet I couldn't find
any conclusive hint up to now. Searching also in this GThomas
List I didn't find references of Ouseley at all.
