Ancient Bibles and Biblical texts from the Bodleian and Vatican libraries have been digitised and made available to the public for the first time.

Europe's first printed book, Gutenberg's 1455 Bible, is among texts accessible on a website in the project run by Oxford and The Vatican City.

New technology has enabled zoomable high-resolution images of the early manuscripts and books for research.

The £2m project will digitise 1.5m pages over the next three years.
