A hundred and fifty ancient Jewish scrolls founding northern Afghanistan have recently been discovered, creating a storm among scholars who say the find reveals a little known aspect of medieval Jewry. Dating from the 11th Century, and found in Afghanistan's Samangan province, the documents were probably smuggled out.

There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga
