Codex Sinaiticus - Home

The oldest known manuscript of the Christian Bible known as the Codex Sinaiticus is now available to view on the Internet at  The manuscript was written over 1600 years ago and is the oldest complete copy of the New Testament.  For the last 150 years it has been housed in four separate locations.  In 2005 the four institutions entered into an agreement for the conservation, photography, transcription and publication of all surviving pages.

The web site above contains the results of that conservation effort.  Photographs of the original pages can be viewed along with the transcription of the work.

If you like history or bible research, you will find this interesting.
