1600 Year Old Bible to go online

The Codex Sinaiticus Project is placing high-resolution images of the oldest complete copy of the New Testament online - the complete manuscript! The text is in ancient Greek (of course), but there will be translations in English and German. (Will that be the King James version? 'Cause you know, if it ain't....)

As much as I love wasting time on the Internet, it's nice to see something this important and historic going online. Even if it is likely to be over my head!

The site goes live on July 24th, but they do have an intro up. LINK
