Sinaiticus Goes Digital

Today Codex Sinaiticus will be available for all to see.  Not all of it, but at least a bit of it.  The site’s full completion of uploading the manuscript should happen by mid-summer next year.  Sinaiticus, a fourth-century manuscript, is the oldest complete New Testament manuscript known to us today (Old Testament is lacking portions).  I had the opportunity to see it a few times at the British Library, while passing through London.  It is truly a beauty.

News has been circulating for several days about it so I thought I would go ahead and mention it here.  So check it out and bookmark it!  www.codexsinaiticus.org

Note: if the site doesn’t initially work it probably means they’re still working on it — it’s the launch day!  So try refreshing your page if it doesn’t work at first.
