Codex Sinaiticus is the oldest known complete manuscript featuring the full canon of the Christian Bible in Greek. It was originally produced in the middle of the fourth Century (ca. 350A.D.) in the south-eastern Mediterranean. Originally Codex Sinaiticus was produced on parchment whose total number exceeded 730 leaves, approximately 1,460 pages. It contains the oldest complete New Testament and, at one time the entire Old Testament.
Sections of Genesis and other areas of the Pentateuch were damaged or lost over the centuries. Nevertheless, the vast majority of the Old Testament text remains and is now preserved in this facsimile edition. The importance of the 4th Century to Christian history cannot be overstated, and Codex Sinaiticus is our greatest witness to that era, especially because it reveals how Christians began to understand their canonical Scriptures.
Totaling 828 pages, the facsimile edition comes in hardback binding accompanied by a sturdy slip case that is designed to provide support the weight of the facsimiles pages (app. 25 lbs) and prevent them from tearing away from the back binding. It pages are thick, glossy and "life-size" pages (13.5'x16.5') well-suited for image reproduction. The Codex Sinaiticus facsimile edition also comes with a 32 page booklet that provides a brief outline of the provenance, history, and discovery of this significant piece of history.

Hapax LegomenonAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Mirabile dictuSeptember 5, 2013Hapax LegomenonAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5First, this book is enormous. I have no idea where I'm going to put it in my house. Regardless, I am extremely glad to own it. How could I say no--the price on CBD was unbeatable and the shipping was very fast!
The colors on the printed pages are excellent and there is very little glare when opened. Highly readable. The binding is not of the quality it could be for supporting a book of this size and weight but I'm sure the price would be remarkably higher if the binding were improved at all. I think it is sturdy enough to last so I'm not worried.
Overall I am thrilled with this beautiful facsimile of such an important work in the history of the Scriptures. I'm still learning Greek but I've enjoyed the challenges that this book presents as I continue to learn. I've used the website to view the manuscript many times and I highly recommend that this facsimile and the online version be used to complement one's study of the Sinaiticus.

TRAA5 Stars Out Of 5A treasure and a delightFebruary 18, 2013TRAAQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this from Christianbook.com and at their price it is a superb bargain. I am in Europe and it was shipped to me from another EU country, so delivery was speedy and there were no Customs charges to pay.
The quality of the reproduction is superb and those who are accustomed to reading the New Testament or the Septuagint in KoinÃÂ© Greek are likely to love this.
On a matter of detail, it does not contain "the full canon of the Christian Bible". It contains the whole of the New Testament, plus two early works of Christian literature, and about half of the Old Testament and the Apocrypha. It does include Isaiah, Jeremiah, many of the minor prophets and most of the poetical books (Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Job), plus some chapters from Genesis, Leviticus and Numbers, and some other OT books, plus some books from the Apocrypha.
It is large and heavy and needs to be opened on a large table, preferably using other large books as wedges under the front and back covers to protect the spine. One would be advised to store it horizontally.
All of the text is legible and most of it is absolutely superb. It deserves the highest-possible recommendation.
