As the oldest manuscript of the Bible in existence, the Aleppo Codex is a sacred text for a number of key reasons. The Codex was written in the year 930 CE and it made its way through a number of places in the Near East before arriving in Israel in 1958. In the past few years, the Ben-Zvi Institute (working with funds provided by George S. Blumenthal) has digitized this remarkable document. On the homepage, visitors can read a brief introduction to the Codex, and also read articles that include "Testimonies on the Text" and "The Bible and Its Transmission". Visitors who click on the "View Aleppo Codex" button on the homepage can choose a book and chapter to view, and they also can zoom in and out around the page as they wish. The materials on the site are also available in Hebrew, and visitors can also contact the Institute with any queries they might have.
