After a 4 year long project a digitized version of Codex Sinaiticus is available at www.codexsinaiticus.com. Codex Sinaiticus is a 4th century C.E. witness to the whole of the New Testament (though the order is different from our modern bibles) as well as half of the Hebrew Bible and parts of the Apocrypha (2 Esdras, Tobit, Judith, 1 & 4 Maccabees, Wisdom and Sirach) written in Koiné Greek majuscules.
From the AP:
The early work known as the Codex Sinaiticus has been housed in four separate locations across the world for more than 150 years. Starting Monday, it became available for perusal on the Web at http://www.codexsinaiticus.org so scholars and other readers can get a closer look at what the British Library calls a “unique treasure.”
Scot McKendrick, head of Western manuscripts at the British Library, said the book “offers a window into the development of early Christianity and firsthand evidence of how the text of the Bible was transmitted from generation to generation.”
The 4th-century book, written in Greek on parchment leaves, has been housed in four separate locations across the world for more than 150 years. It has been digitally reunited in a project involving organizations from Britain, Germany, Russia, and Egypt, each of which possessed parts of the 1,600-year-old manuscript.
