Precious manuscript, stolen from Turin archdiocese, recovered in Florida
January 28, 2014
Law-enforcement officials in Florida have found a precious manuscript that was stolen in Italy 25 years ago, and will restore it to the Archdiocese of Turin.
The manuscript, a richly illustrated page from a 15th-century prayer book describing the martyrdom of St. Lawrence, was stolen in 1990. After passing through several owners, it was purchased by a couple in Florida, who voluntarily turned it over to police. The Florida couple will not be charged.
