A PLAN: The Education Ministry’s school books department (Minister Constantine Kallios) has written to the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Istanbul asking for the original texts of the Holy Bible (both the Old and New Testaments) in order to publish them for the Organization of School Books and halt the sale of distorted texts used as various kinds of propaganda. At the same time, the ministry has set up a committee to study and collect material from the writings of the ancients for a publication of ancient texts of all the Greek, Byzantine and Latin writers.
