      Thanks for this news.

      It is a pity that all the partners to the Sinaiticus project seem to have adopted this idea for publicity purposes that Sinaiticus is 'the oldest Bible in the world' - "die älteste Bibel der Welt" - which it plainly isn't. I'm quite happy with "eines der bedeutendsten Bibelmanuskripte der Welt" - no one could disagree with that.

      For the British Library on the "World's oldest Bible" see http://www.bl.uk/news/2005/pressrelease20050311.html


      Cheers

      Yesterday a page of the Codex Sinaiticus was displayed in the Leipzig
      University Library. It is the page 23 of folios that are in the Leipzig
      University Library and it contains the text from the Book of Jeremiah
      17.8b-18.6a. (A snap shot of the page is attached.)
        In a short lecture the history of the codex was sketched and the
      international Codex Sinaiticus project was introduced.
