On Exploring Our Matrix, James McGrath has presented a compelling appeal for increased access to manuscripts via digital technology. I couldn’t agree more; digital images distributed via the internet would allow libraries to retain control of their priceless holdings while simultaneously providing biblical scholars with unprecedented opportunities to incorporate manuscript studies into their work. The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, and more recently the heralded Codex Sinaiticus Project, have served as the vanguard for this charge. Hopefully other libraries and organizations will soon follow suit and make all of the most significant early witnesses to the biblical text readily available.
