Some of our most popular blogs each year are the From the Library posts, so we compiled every From the Library post from last year for those of you who are new to CSNTM or might have missed an earlier post. Enjoy reading (or re-reading!) these five pieces. We look forward to continuing the From the Library series in 2021.
The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) Digital Library contains hundreds of Greek NT manuscripts, each with its own story to tell. In our From the Library series, we will feature individual manuscripts and common manuscript features using images digitzed by CSNTM. We hope these articles showcase the unique beauty and significance of these fascinating documents. This is part of CSNTM’s mission to make NT manuscripts accessible for everyone.
From the Library: GA 807
In 2018 CSNTM digitized the collection of the Library of the Hellenic Parliament in Athens, Greece. As we feature this manuscript in our From the Library series, we will give our attention to the process of digitizing this manuscript, see how it handles the story of the woman caught in adultery, and discuss the commentary included throughout.
