Holy writ

Porque há histórias que merecem ser lidas fica aqui a história de um pequeno livro que foi escrito vai para 1300 anos...
What is remarkable is not the price; though a record for a religious book, it is still considered a bargain (the Rothschild "Book of Hours", an illuminated work dating from 1505, fetched £8.6m at auction in 1999). Nor is it a shock that the funds have all come from philanthropic sources, given Britain's newly whetted appetite for private giving (see chart below). The real story is the object itself.
