More manuscripts at Deir al-Suryani in the Nitrian desert

This is an old news story (2006), but I must have missed it.  Apparently there are still some 40 manuscripts at the monastery of the Syrians in the Nitrian desert in Egypt.  They are, of course, in poor condition.  Texts mentioned include Jacob of Serug and the Book of Holy Hierotheos by Stephen bar Sudaili.
