This book tells the fascinating story of the Codex Sinaiticus: the world in which it was made, how it was made, and its later history, including the story of Constantine Tischendorf's visits to the monastery in the nineteenth century, how parts of the manuscript found their way to Leipzig, St Petersburg and the British Library, and the international partnership which created the electronic version.
