Alot of people don't realise that the earliest known writings in the Cornish language made sometime between 1141 and 1155 are held by the Vatican in their library.

If anyone sees the Pope can they ask if we can have it back? I'm sure he wouldnt miss it. ;)

Prophecy of Merlin (Prophetiae Merlini), sometimes called The Prophecy of Ambrosius Merlin concerning the Seven Kings, is a 12th-century poem written in Latin hexameters by John of Cornwall, which he claimed was based or revived from a lost manuscript in the Cornish language.
