The new Codex Sinaiticus website (experiencing severe overload) has stirred up a lot of media coverage recently. The guys at the TC Blog have posted brief highlights of the related conference and a commitment for further details. I am particularly fascinated about René Larsen’s discussion regarding the potential of manuscript localization based on spectrographic analysis. I doubt such a method will be definitive, but perhaps it can serve as one more tool in the TC toolbox.
Hopefully Larsen and others working with the IDAP network will make progress in conserving manuscripts. Time is certainly not friendly to manuscripts! Regardless, let’s keep snapping pictures! Thanks Dan Wallace and CSNTM! Preservation one way or another.
