      >Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New
      >Testament. Its heavily corrected text is of outstanding importance for the
      >history of the Bible and the manuscript - the oldest substantial book to
      >survive Antiquity - is of supreme importance for the history of the book.
