While mindlessly surfing the web last night, I discovered an inexplicable oversight: I neglected to mention that February 4 marked the sesquicentennial (that’s the 150th anniversary, for all you philistines out there) of the scholarly discovery of the priceless Codex Sinaiticus by Constantin von Tischendorf. Go drink a toast or gulp down a piece of cake in its honor… or check out the remarkable collaborative Codex Sinaiticus Project, which is slated for final completion in July 2009.
