World's Oldest Bible Goes Digital

Ad Feedback

Surviving pages of the world's oldest Christian Bible, the Codex Sinaiticus, have been reunited and released as a digital document.

The pages of the ancient book were hand written over 1,600 years ago and have been housed in four separate countries for more than 150 years.

The digital revamp took international negotiations to gather all fragments from The British Library, the National Library of Russia, Leipzig University Library in Germany, and St. Catherines Monastery in Egypt.  

Codex Sinaiticus Project team members worked for four years on the digital reinvention.

"(It) offers a window into the development of early Christianity and firsthand evidence of how the text of the Bible was transmitted from generation to generation," one official said.

The original manuscript contains the earliest complete copy of the Christian New Testament, much of the accepted Old Testament, and books considered Apocryphal.
