Greek New Testament Manuscripts
The beginning of the Gospel of St Matthew, Add MS 11300 [Gregory-Aland 478], f.8r
As somebody with a Biblical Studies background, I am particularly looking forward to seeing a number of Greek New Testament manuscripts fully available on the web this summer. The first phase of the Greek Manuscripts Digitisation Project, funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, will include no less than one majuscule from the 7th century, 33 minuscules from the 10th-14th centuries, and 16 lectionaries from the 11th-14th centuries.
I am planning to post on a selection of these over the following weeks.
