Codex Sinaiticus: Text, Bible, Book

The Codex Sinaiticus Project, an extensive effort to publish all extant leaves of the manuscript in a revolutionary electronic interface, is scheduled to be completed next month. The British Library is celebrating this achievement with a two-day conference entitled “Codex Sinaiticus: Text, Bible, Book.” Details of the event, including registration fees and procedures, are available here. The keynote speaker is renowned New Testament scholar and textual critic Eldon Epp; other speakers include my own professor and mentor Harry Gamble, who will be discussing the codex’s construction as an icon of religious devotion. Sounds like a pretty good excuse for a trip to London!
