The Codex Sinaiticus Online

Really interesting (and quite a neat) development.  The Codex Sinaiticus manuscripts are going to be brought back together online.  You can read about it here: Scholars plan to reunite ancient Bible — Online.  It’s going to take them about a year to get it all setup and accessible.

Here is the main site: http://www.codexsinaiticus.org/ that will go live on July 24th, 2008…this Thursday.  It will start with The Psalms, and The Gospel of Mark.  The Codex Sinaiticus was written somewhere in the 4th century (300’s AD).  It contains all of the Greek New Testament, as well as portions of the Septuagint; Greek Old Testament.  It is one of the most important documents, or manuscripts, relating to textual criticism (“text crit”) of the Greek OT and NT.
