    About 800 pages of the earliest surviving Christian Bible have been recovered and put on the internet.

    Visitors to the website www.codexsinaiticus.org can now see images of more than half the 1,600-year-old Codex Sinaiticus manuscript.

    Fragments of the 4th Century document - written in Greek on parchment leaves - have been worked on by institutions in the UK, Germany, Egypt and Russia.

    Experts say it is "a window into the development of early Christianity".



    I thought that this might interest the many Christians here on the boards. 🙂
