Hello all. Looking for opinions.

"The archives of the medical department of Lourdes are filled with dossiers that detail well-authenticated cases of what are termed miraculous healings."

Does that mean:

The archives are filled with dossiers, and that these dossiers detail cases of
miraculous healings.

Or does it mean:

The archives are filled with dossiers, and dossiers in
general are things that detail cases of miraculous healings.

It means the archives are filled with dossiers, and that these dossiers detail cases of
miraculous healings
-- common sense and the dictionary tell us that dossiers have multifarious contents.

I agree. It means the first, not the second. Nothing in the sentence attempts to define dossiers as those things which detail cases of miraculous healings.
