The Oldest Bible

'Just Stories?' #24

What's in the series?      Previous: Codex Alexandrinus      Next: Found in the Rubbish

The oldest Bible in the world today is Codex Sinaiticus - this literally means ‘the book from the Sinai peninsula.’  It was made around 325-350 AD (which means that it is a century older than Codex Alexandrinus), and it originally contained all 66 books of our current Bible.

It was discovered by Constantin von Tischendorf, in St. Catherine’s monastery, at the foot of Mt. Sinai. It made its way into the hands of the Tsar of Russia. After the Russian revolution in 1917, the Russians sold it to the British Museum on Christmas day 1933, for £100,000. Today it is on display in the British Library.
