Binding the Codex

Michael Leary has been busy investigating the bindings of Codex Bezae and Codex Sinaiticus. Unfortunately the care taken in relatively* contemporary restoration, involving stretching the pages and rebinding the codices, doesn't leave much ancient evidence visible.

*For the significance of 'relatively' you'll have to consult ML's attempt to win the prize for "the most irrelevant detail in blogging on New Testament MSS for 2007". As for me, I say there is plenty of water to go under the bridge before the end of 2007!
