I actually found out about this a little over a week ago as I was looking for Greek manuscripts of the Bible for a discussion that was going on over at Theologica. I haven’t had much of a chance to play around with it, but it’s relatively easy to use. So far, I like what I’ve seen.

What is the Codex Sinaiticus, and what does it reveal about the Bible?
by Paul Vallely
Why are we asking this now? It is the oldest Bible in the world. The 4th-century book is considered to be one of the most important texts in existence. Until this week, no one alive has seen all its 800 pages together in one place because in the 19th century the document was split into sections and is now in four different locations – London, St Petersburg, Leipzig and Egypt. But the creation of an online virtual Codex Sinaiticus permits anyone to see the manuscript in its entirety at www.codex-sinaiticus.net.
