More > March 1941) was an English biblical scholar and curator of manuscripts, who was instrumental in bringing back to light many Syriac Scriptures and other early documents. His contacts at the Saint Catherine's Monastery on Mount Sinai in Egypt enabled twin sisters Agnes Smith Lewis and Margaret Dunlop Gibson to discover there the Sinaitic Palimpsest, the oldest Syriac New Testament document in existence. He subsequently accompanied them on a second trip, with Robert Bensly and Francis Crawford Burkitt, to decipher the palimpsest. He himself discovered there other manuscripts (073, 0118, 0119, 0137, a Syriac text of the Apology of Aristides etc.,). Harris's Biblical Fragments from Mount Sinai appeared in 1890.

More > an Gof Trophy 2004) and A Dangerous Place to Work! (2007). It brings the direct experiences of philosopher Samuel Drew, preacher Billy Bray & poet John Harris, alongside those whose lives would have been lost to history, had it not been for a chance interview or conversation. These include those who featured in a Royal Commission 1842, the late 19th century Troon balmaidens interviewed for a scrapbook competition 1951, women who worked at a Glass Mine in the First World War, and newspaper interviews with two ex-bal maidens in their old age. In addition, we have autobiographies from a terminally ill bal maiden, a Delabole slate agent, and two workers at Geevor Tin Mine during the Second World War. All remind us of the important part played by these unsung heroes of the mining and quarrying industries of Cornwall.< Less
