In 1892 Mrs. Agnes Smith Lewis discovered in the Monastery of St. Catherine on Mt. Sinai some palimpsest leaves of a Syriac text of the Gospels. This was published in 1894 by Bensley Harris and Burkitt, with an introduction by Mrs. Lewis. She has supplemented this work by a translation of the Syriac text published in 1896. This is usually spoken of as the Sinaitic palimpsest.

The greatest divergency exists among scholars regarding its date, and in the present unsettled state of the question it is useless to venture a judgment.
