- Manuscripts, Greek -- Facsimiles.
- Codex Sinaiticus, written in Greek in the fourth century, is the oldest surviving complete New Testament and one of the two oldest manuscripts of the whole Bible. Since 2002, a major international project has been creating an electronic version of the manuscript and this facsimile is based on that project. The facsimile reunites the text, now divided between the British Library, the National Library of Russia, Saint Catherine's Monastery (Mount Sinai) and Leipzig University Library.
- "The printed fascimile of Codex Sinaiticus is based on the digital photographs taken as part of the Codex Sinaiticus Project at the The British Library in London"--page 5, Reference guide.
