British Library: Growing Knowledge

In a world when books, videos, journals, newspapers, paintings and sound archives have all been digitised, how will we research?

British Library: Codex Sinaiticus

In June 2009 The British Library launched Codex Sinaiticus, a digital re-unification of the oldest, most complete version of the bible in the world, dating from the 4th century. Various parts of the manuscript have been held in London, Leipzig, St Petersburg and St Catherine’s Monastery, so Turning the Pages was used to bring them together as one volume as they were written over 1600 years ago.
