Codex Sinaiticus: New Perspectives on the Ancient Biblical Manuscript
"Codex Sinaiticus" is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1,600 years ago, it contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament.
This collection of scholarly essays constitutes an important reappraisal of the history of the manuscript. The evidence relating to the production of the manuscript is assessed by several contributors, who pay careful attention to the thousands of corrections made to the text by several hands.
The significance of "Codex Sinaiticus" for our understanding of the New Testament text is analysed in detail, with a number of articles showing how the manuscript helps us to understand the formation of the Christian canon in antiquity. Newly discovered archival material sheds light on the complex sequence of events that led to the" Codex" being dispersed across four libraries.
