Old school Greek meets the web

August 5, 2005

Codexsinaiticus

The Codex Sinaiticus is going hi tech. This is a big deal.  For those inclined to read Greek from the 4th century, this rare document will soon be available online.  Having only been seen in person a handful of times in the last twenty years, Greek students everywhere must be wetting themselves.  If I knew Greek better, I would be too.

The project is a collaboration, but from the looks of things, the British Library is heading up the project (probably since that library has the vast majority of the document).  Can’t even imagine what it would be like to scan that thing.  What pressure!

Best part: the website will be free.
