  • Title from home page (viewed on July 20, 2009)
  • Partner institutions in the Codex Sinaiticus Project: the British Library, National Library of Russia, St. Catherine's Monastery, and Leipzig University Library
  • Launched with partial reproduction of the Codex on July 24, 2008. From July 6, 2009, includes all <408> extant pages and <40> fragments of the Codex
  • "Codex Sinaiticus, a manuscript of the Christian Bible written in the middle of the fourth century, contains the earliest complete copy of the Christian New Testament. The hand-written text is in Greek. The New Testament appears in the original vernacular language (koine) and the Old Testament in the version, known as the Septuagint, that was adopted by early Greek-speaking Christians. In the Codex, the text of both the Septuagint and the New Testament has been heavily annotated by a series of early correctors."
  • Codex Sinaiticus is named after the Monastery of Saint Catherine, Mount Sinai, where it was preserved for many centuries. It is generally dated to the middle of the fourth century. Leaves and fragments of this manuscript were taken by Constantine Tischendorf on three occasions-- in 1844, in 1853 and in 1859 -- so that they might be published. The principal surviving portion of the Codex, comprising 347 leaves, was purchased from the Soviet government in 1933 and is now held by the British Library. A further 43 leaves are held at the University Library in Leipzig. Parts of six leaves are held at the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg. Twelve leaves and forty fragments remain at Saint Catherine's Monastery, recovered by the monks from the northern wall of the monastery in June 1975
