The World’s Oldest Bible: How Technology Shapes Belief
Event 238 • • Venue: Google’s Big Tent
Codex Sinaiticus, copied in the middle of the C4th, is both the oldest surviving Christian Bible and one of the first to be made. Parker describes this beautiful and remarkable manuscript, discussing the religious significance of the technological revolution from which it emerged and suggests parallels with other momentous happenings in the history of the book, which have shaped belief.
