During January, the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts continued its digitization project at the National Library of Greece. In only nine days of work, 27 manuscripts were digitally preserved! The team members worked tirelessly while striving to take the most accurate and visually appealing images. Their efforts resulted in more than 13,000 images! We were fortunate to work with a dedicated team of librarians that demonstrated their skill and care for the manuscripts every day.Among the documents photographed during January were seven newly discovered Greek New Testament manuscripts!
Among the documents photographed during January were seven newly discovered Greek New Testament manuscripts! CSNTM’s Executive Director, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace, along with graduate student and former CSNTM intern Max Berti, identified these manuscripts as they prepared them for digitization. We would like to give many thanks to the staff in the manuscript room for combing through their entire collection of manuscripts to identify ones that could potentially include New Testament texts.
The new images will be added to our digital library and backed up for long term storage so that they will be preserved for generations to come! There is still more work to be done in Athens, and we are looking forward to completing the project in 2016 and making more manuscripts available for all to use.
