The Leningrad Codex, or Leningradensis, is the oldest complete Hebrew bible still preserved. Dating to the year 1010 C.E., the manuscript contains the whole Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament in Hebrew). In 1990 a team from the West Semitic Research Project and the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center traveled to the Russian National Library in St. Petersburg to photograph all 1,000 pages of the Bible.
The Leningrad Codex: A Facsimile Edition.
General Editor: David Noel Freedman
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Brill Academic Publishers in Leiden, the Netherlands, have published (1998) a
facsimile edition of the Leningrad Codex using the photographs taken in
1990. The facsimile is intended as a scholar's edition, and most of the
pages are in black and white. The sixteen illuminated pages of the
Codex, however, are printed in color. If you would like more information, please
