Historic Bible Pages available online
Date Published: Friday, 24 July 2009
Around 800 pages of the earliest survivng Christian Bible have been scanned and placed online. Visitors to the website www.codexsinaiticus.org are able to search and browse around half of the Sinaiticus manuscript which dates from around 400AD.
For over 1500 years the codex lay undisturbed in a monastery in Sinai until it was found in 1844 and distributed to scholars in a number of countries around Europe.
The 2011 Trust will shortly be unveiling a similar project on this website which will make a scanned in version of a 1611 first edition available online for the first time.
