Operating as usual

Eusebius of Caesarea (ca. 265-339 CE) invented an ingenious system for helping one find parallel passages in the gospels. This system became known as the Eusebian Canons and was used in Greek, Latin, Syriac, Coptic, Gothic, and Armenian manuscripts as well as other versions, and is actually still included in one of today’s most influential Greek NT texts (NA28).


Codex Montfortianus, or 61, is famously known for its Comma Johanneum, which is a trinitarian statement in 1 John saying: “the Father, the Word, and The Holy Spirit: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth.” This reading in the sixteenth century manuscript reflects the reading found in the Latin Vulgate, and was enough for Erasmus to include it in his 1522 printed edition of the Greek New Testament.


Happy Easter to all of our Orthodox friends! This image shows the beginning of Luke 24 in GA 2882. "Γιατί αναζητάτε το ζωντανό ανάμεσα στους νεκρούς; Δεν είναι εδώ, αλλά έχει ανέβει." / "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen."

Our Story

CSNTM was founded in September 2002 by noted New Testament scholar and professor, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace, to utilize emerging technologies to photograph and fully archive all known Greek New Testament manuscripts. Since the Center’s founding, we have gained an international reputation for our expertise in digitization and manuscript studies. As of 2019, we have collaborated with more than 45 institutions on 4 continents to produce nearly 300,000 images from approximately 700 New Testament manuscripts. In the process, we have discovered over 75 New Testament manuscripts that were previously unknown—more than any other organization in the 21st century. Our online library features images or links to more than 1,700 manuscripts.
