Read Secrets of Parchment.
Much of the lore of ancient palimp
sests-parchment manuscripts from
which the original writing has been
erased and written over at a later
date-is about to be laid bare by the
mysterious power of the ultra-violet
light produced by the mercury-vapor
lamps. Previous to 1914 the discov
erer of a new method of using the
rays, a Benedictine monk of the Bava

that many of the ancient parchments
in the Benedictine abbey of Wesso
brunn had been made to disclose their

simple, being-based upon the peculiar

a pale casnary-colored light-when

parchments possess this property to a
remarkable degree, while the ink of
