New Free Resource of Interest

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Canadian Blogger extraordinaire Don Jonson has pointed out that Codex Sinaiticus (also known as Aleph) is now available for viewing online.

Codex Sinaiticus is the oldest complete copy of the New Testament and it is physically located in four different locations, the largest portion of which is at the British Museum in London, with other parts in Russia, Germany, and Mt. Sinai. However, through the wonder that is the internet / world wide web, you can now view the entire thing from the comfort of your own home or office.

No matter what position one holds on the text, the availabilty of Codex Sinaiticus online is a neat thing to see. While I find the interface to be a little slow on my old computer, it is neat that you can look up a passage and see the actual manuscript.

You can find the site at

Just someone else's work,

It might not be your computer. More likely it is capacity issues on their end. I read somewhere that the site actually went down for a while because so many people were hitting it. The news of this resource was picked up by many of the major news media outlets. My guess is that after all the publicity has died down, you will see better response times.
