The Lost Book of Moses: The Hunt for the World's Oldest Bible | Chanan Tigay || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2019–2020 Fellows' Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Chanan Tigay RI '20 shares some backstory before reading a passage from his first book, The Lost Book of Moses: The Hunt for the World's Oldest Bible (Ecco, 2016), about the oldest Bible in the world, how its outing as a fraud led to a scandalous death, and why archaeologists now believe it was real—if only they could find it.

Tigay is an award-winning journalist and nonfiction writer. He is a 2019–2020 fellow at the Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University, where he is working on a new book.
