Ok…it will only be temporarily.
However, the fact is that one of the world’s most important books will go to the British Museum. The Codex Sinaiticus has only been lent once before, in 1990, also to the British Museum.
This time it will be part of an exhibition exploring 1,200 years of Christian, Islamic and Jewish faith in Egypt after the pharaohs.
Codex Sinaiticus is dating back to the 4th century AD, shortly after the reign of the Emperor Constantine the Great, and contains the earliest complete manuscript of the New Testament. It is handwritten in Greek by four different scribes (the number has never been confirmed) and contains some 27,000 corrections. It is, however, still a very fine book despite the activity going on between lines, and all over the place.

Clothes, food, and cash donations. More and more people are encouraging others to give to charity for the hundreds of thousands of refugees that are fleeing their countries.
They had to leave everything behind and are often even lucky if they arrive at their destination alive. Of course, one’s first thought would be that they needed clothes, food, and a place to stay since they often arrive with nothing but the clothes they are wearing at that time.

Martin Luther always wanted an illustrated Bible that can be studied by anyone. Even though many have tried to accomplish this mission – “The Wiedmann Bible” exceeds all existing versions.
With its 3,333 hand-painted images it can be considered the world’s longest Bible illustration. The artist Willy Wiedmann kept his work hidden in his archive for decades. It finally debuted at the Evangelical Church Congress in Stuttgart in June 2015. The visitors were amazed. Especially because with this Bible illiterates and people with reading disabilities or people that come together from different countries can study the Bible together.

We are excited to announce that “The World’s Longest Painted Bible – The Wiedmann Bible” film has debuted on youtube. Starting today you can watch our short documentary about the German Evangelical Church Conference in Stuttgart. The attendees were amazed, some even speechless.
