Codex Sinaiticus to be Digitized

The Codex Sinaiticus, the earliest copy of the New Testament, is scheduled to be digitized and published on CD-ROM.

Written in the 4th century, the manuscript was created by hand on vellum. Leaves from the original have been discovered at various sites around the world and collected by four institutions: the British Library, Leipzig University Library in Germany, National Library of Russia, and St. Catherine's Monastery in Egypt. These organizations have signed on to the project to produce the digital copy as close as possible to the original work.
