Codex Alexandrinus  


The Codex Alexandrinus is a 5th century manuscript of the Greek Bible, containing the majority of the Septuagint and the New Testament.

It is one of the earliest and most complete manuscripts of the Bible.

It derives its name from Alexandria where it resided for a number of years before it was brought by Cyril Lucaris from Alexandria to Constantinople.

Today, it rests along with Codex Sinaiticus in one of the showcases in the Ritblat Gallery of the British Library.

As the text came from several different traditions, different parts of the codex are not of equal textual value. The text has been edited several times since the 18th century.

Scripture Type:Codex
A codex is a book constructed of a number of sheets of paper, vellum, papyrus, or similar materials, with hand-written contents. The book is usually bound by stacking the pages and fixing one edge, and using a cover thicker than the sheets. The Romans developed the form from wooden writing tablets. The codex's gradual replacement of the scroll, the dominant book form in the ancient world has been called the most important advance in book making before the invention of printing. The codex transformed the shape of the book itself, and offered a form that lasted for centuries.
