Ancient writings were discovered in 1945 which revealed more information about the concept of reincarnation from a sect of Christians called "Gnostics". This sect was ultimately destroyed by the Roman orthodox church, their followers burned at the stake and their writings wiped out.
The writings included some long lost gospels, some of which were written early than the known gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
