The 'real' DaVinci Code type scandal

Nag Hamadi,1946 Those scrolls are found.

How many have found their way to the secret vaults of the Catholic Church?

How many of the Scrolls have been allowed to be studied by modern academics?

Does 'The Gospel of Thomas:the secret sayings of Jesus", and other such scrolls, really threaten the fundamentals of the church - or do such documents more adequately reflect the way in which Christianity has been manipulated from within?

Can the institutionalised Christian Church survive the open study of ALL the scrolls documents from Nag Hamadi or must these remain 'protected from public view?'

"Unless drastic measures are taken at once,the greatest and most valuable of all Hebrew and Aramaic manuscript discoveries
is likely to become the academic scandal par excellence of the twentieth century."
