Codex Sinaiticus Project recognised

Just the other week the Codex Sinaiticus Project received a commendation for their work (as read on the Museums and Heritage site here). However, the Pilgrim Conservation price was not awarded to the manuscript project, but to some restoration activity that built scaffolding so that the public could see some paintings as intended. Clearly, the comfort of up-to-date digital access from your sofa lost out on climbing up the good old scaffolding.

Glad that no one can accuse the price of being indiscriminately progressive.


  1. The scaffolding apparently took ten years to build. It must be amazing.

  2. {Prize, not price.}

  3. So have they remedied the English "translation" at the Codex Sinaiticus site yet??

    Yours in Christ,
