      Greek transliterated with Latin letters, to be precise. I was interested in this since I'm writing something about the Psalter and would like to look at some Greek Psalter manuscripts. Anyone have any leads on Greek Psalter manuscripts (preferably liturgical Psalters, i.e., those produced for use in communal worship) viewable on the web?

      And relavent to the site James has posted about: these are pretty low-quality images, even when zoomed (I write of the non-subscribed functionality of the site). Bringing up the slightly enlarged images didn't entail any significant delay on my connection. But it wasn't much more useful than the thumbnail images.

      This site, while seeming to offer some promise, turns out to provide yet another example of the ways in which non-affiliated scholars can be essentially shut out from using valuable resources (unless they happen to have a spare $3500.00 per year, or $10000.00 for lifetime access).
