Gospel of Judas in Coptic (discovered recently)

An ancient Coptic manuscript dating from the third or fourth century,
containing the only known surviving copy of the Gospel of Judas, has been
restored and authenticated after being lost for nearly 1,700 years.

The National Geographic published recently the text of the Gospel of Judas, at
http://www.nationalgeographic.com/lostgospel/about.html

The text, in Coptic (Unicode) is available from
http://www.nationalgeographic.com/lostgospel/about_coptic_text.html (PDF)
As it is in PDF, you will be able to read it even if you do not have Coptic Unicode fonts yet.

The same reconstructed document is also available from
http://homepage.mac.com/thgewecke/ujudas2.html
as Unicode text.
