Mount Athos on 60 Minutes

Anyone interested in researching manuscripts, particularly Greek manuscripts, will have heard of Mount Athos, an isolated Greek peninsula that houses a number of monasteries. It is rare for television cameras to be allowed access to the area, but 60 Minutes managed to do so recently and aired their report last week. You can see it on-line HERE. Watch also the seven-minute travelogue which discusses the difficulties of filming the report. I used two manuscripts from Mt. Athos for my work on the Infancy Gospel of Thomas but have not (yet) visited the site.
