Sinaiticus in Times Literary Supplement

In the recent Times Literary Supplement, published on Friday 29 January, J. K. Elliott has a piece on Codex Sinaiticus and its digitization. The article is available at Times online for subscribers.

Editor Peter Stothard notes:
There is further consolation for the anxious this week in J. K. Elliott’s celebration of the British Library’s extraordinary achievement in uniting in digital form one of the oldest biblical manuscripts, the Codex Sinaiticus. The story of how schoolchildren and the unemployed contributed to buying the British sections from Stalin was told in an exhibition last year; the online version, which brings together parts scattered in four physical locations, is already being studied in new detail and by millions who would otherwise have struggled to see it at all.
