An ancient document has revealed that the baby Jesus may have been visited by crowds of wise men.While the traditional view of the three wise men travelling to Bethlehem to bring gifts for the baby Jesus has been a staple of the nativity story for years, a new intepretation of an ancient document suggests that there may have more than three - a lot more in fact."Revelation of the Magi", a document stored in the Vatican, appears to describe how several dozen wise men travelled to visit Jesus from a faraway land believed to be China.

They are one of the most recognised symbols of the festive season, emulated in nativity plays all over the world and whose imagery adorns the front of millions of Christmas cards.

The legendary biblical artefact may have to be moved from the church in which it is thought to reside.The Ark of the Covenant was brought to the forefront of the public"s imagination when it was featured in the Indiana Jones movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Said to have held the original tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments, the Ark"s whereabouts has never been confirmed however manybelieve it is located in a small chapel in Ethiopia.

Now due to a leaky roof the Ark may need to be moved to a new home, providing a chance for historians to confirm or deny its presence there once and for all. The Ark - which The Bible says holds God"s Ten Commandments given to Moses on Mount Sinai - is said to have been kept in Aksum, in the Chapel of the Tablet, adjacent to St Mary of ZionChurch, since the 1960s.

The current investigation is focused on examining the textiles found with the scrolls, which appear to be linen as oppose to wool suggesting an ancient Israeli origin. The Dead Sea Scrolls may have been written, at least in part, by a sectarian group called the Essenes, according to nearly 200 textilesdiscovered in caves at Qumran, in the West Bank, where the religious texts had been stored.
