A Hebrew manuscript stolen from the Bibliotheque nationale de France was returned. A 13th century Bible, referred to as H??breu 23, had been stolen from the national library’s collection in 2000 allegedly by a former curator, Michel Garel, and sold to a London art dealer, David Sofer. It was returned earlier this month. In March 2006, Garel was found guilty of the theft of another manuscript, H??breu 52, and his appeal was denied in January. He was sentenced to 15 months in prison. H??breu 52 was returned to the national library in January by an American art dealer.
