Bodleian and Vatican libraries publicise digitised ancient bibles

From BBC News.


Here is a link to the new online archive of digitized ancient writings

Eventually, the website will have 1.5 million pages of ancient Hebrew, Greek and early Christian manuscripts. At present, it is possible to view a 1455 Gutenberg Bible, an illustrated 11th-century Greek Bible and a 15th-century German Bible which is hand-painted and illustrated by woodcuts.

Monsignor Cesare Pasini, prefect of the Vatican Library, said the Vatican was also embarking on similar digitization projects with libraries in Azerbaijan and China. This should make even more rarely seen books available to the world.
