Codex] • Released: 1998
"It is a source of pride for the Ancient Biblical Manuscript
Center, and West Semitic Research, along with the University of Michigan, to offer the world of biblical scholarship this
facsimile edition of Leningradensis, the oldest complete Hebrew Bible in the world. A microfilm copy of the Codex which has
been used for the printed editions of Biblia Hebraica (1937) and Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (1967/1977) has existed for
over sixty years. A facsimile edition of the Codex using the available films was published by Makor Press in 1970. Even so,
it was clear that the Codex should be rephotographed using the latest technology.
