In the summer of 2012 the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) traveled to the Gennadius Library at the American School of Classical Studies and the University of Athens in Athens, Greece. These are two exceptional libraries. The Gennadius’ own description demonstrates their amazing collection: “Opened in 1926 with 26,000 volumes from diplomat and bibliophile, Joannes Gennadius, the Gennadius Library now holds a richly diverse collection of over 120,000 books and rare bindings, archives, manuscripts, and works of art illuminating the Hellenic tradition and neighboring cultures.” Here, a team from CSNTM was able to digitize six manuscripts in their collection including three manuscripts not yet catalogued with GA numbers! The team also visited the University of Athens Historical Museum and was able to locate two manuscripts.
The following manuscripts may now be found at http://www.csntm.org/manuscript:
