Recent additions to online digital images of NT manuscripts

December 19, 2012

Thanks to a series of posts on the ETC blog, here is a list of newly available, online, digital editions of some important NT manuscripts.

Codex Alexandrinus (A 02), courtesy of the British Library

Codex Ephraimi Rescriptus (C 04), courtesy of the Bibliothèque nationale de France.

Codex Bezae Cantabrigiensis (D 05), courtesy of Cambridge University

Codex Claromontanus (D 06), courtesy of the Bibliothèque nationale de France

Not online, but digital none the less, Univ. of Michigan has announced that they will soon be releasing a iPad version of P46 (will also run on an iPhone or iPod, though I can’t imagine that being very usable). See the post at The Quaternion for more info and a link to a YouTube PR video for the iPad edition. No word on cost (if any) that I could see.

Although not new, Codex Sinaiticus has been online since 2009.

Now if we could only get Codex Vaticanus (B 02) online! But I’m not holding my breath on that one! I’m fortunate that our seminary library holds one of the horribly expensive color reproductions of B (I think we paid ca. $6,000 for it? Or was it $8K?)

Though not NT, Google has also announced on their blog that the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library, a collection of some 5,000 images of scroll fragments, is now online. (Also a summary on the ETC blog.)
