Ancient Christian ‘good luck charm’ discovered

For 100 years, John Ryland’s library at England’s University of Manchester didn’t realize it had a 1,500 year old Egyptian manuscript that was actually a Christian good luck charm. It was recently discovered by Dr. Roberta Mazza as she searched through the library’s collection of ancient manuscripts. Mazza works for a research institute attached to the library. The charm was written on a piece of papyrus that had earlier been used as a tax receipt for a grain purchase.
