Biblical Manuscripts on Display in the British Library

Last week I took a group to the British Library and was pleasantly surprised by a mini-exhibition in the treasure gallery. The surprise was not to see Sinaiticus or Alexandrinus, but an extra case with a 'Sinai-themed' exhibition entitled 'In a Monastery Library'. This includes the Codex Purpureus Petropolitanus, minuscule 699 and 492, and the beautiful Eusebian Golden Canon Tables. It seems that this display will close at the end of August so one should not wait too long.

Warmly recommended.
