Dated between the 7th and 9th century CE, this is a Coptic amulet that consists of the Letter of Jesus to Abgar, the first and last verses of each of the four canonical Gospels and prayers. This amulet was found and studied by Gregor Emmenegger, and it was later made available at the Bibel and Orient Museum, in Fribourg. It consists of a single 13-line parchment, originally from Egypt.
