Watkins and Leigh Ann Hyde In the pivotal scene of the 1965 holiday special “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown,” the lead actor reaches a moment when he can no longer contain his exasperation.

Manuscripts Digitized at Southern Methodist University

Use three examples.” So much has happened in the last year at the Center! Where to begin? I think I’ll just give three examples. First, CSNTMContinue reading A Letter from Dan Wallace

25 Days of Christmas

Multispectral imaging is a gift that keeps on giving. After using our new equipment this summer in Tbilisi and Heidelberg, even more institutes have expressed interest in CSNTM digitally preserving their Greek New Testament manuscripts.
