Codex Sinaiticus – what’s all the fuss about?
I’ve blogged about this before, and the observant will have noticed that there’s been a link in my resources column to the Codex Sinaiticus ever since. But in case you don’t know what all the fuss is about, check out this great 5 min video from The British Library which has incredible images of the repairs and process involved in scanning each page. The delicacy of each page is terrifying. But what an opportunity now to check out the original text in its entirety. VERY EXCITING. [HT the marvellous Andrea Clarke]
As I’m working on an overview of the Book of Acts at the moment, thought I’d check out the first page. Here’s a screenshot. One of the things that staggers me is the beauty and consistency of the calligraphy. Awesome:
