The British Library has assembled a web portal,
, which “provides access to the richness and diversity of the texts from some of the world’s greatest faiths.” Discovering Sacred Texts
Some of the links under the Judaism and Christianity sections will open full-text digitizations of manuscripts in the library’s catalog. One example is the text of Genesis below from a
17th-century Torah scroll.
Judaism and Rome project “aims to: give access to some important sources, providing as much information as possible: images, original text, translation provide the reader with an original and detailed analysis of each source, a service that is very rarely offered on the internet, and which makes this website comparable to a rich sourcebook promote interdisciplinary discussion between scholars working on Roman history, Jewish Studies, Epigraphy, Numismatics, Classics, Patristics, History of Christianity, etc.”
Several interesting resources have already been made available with the promise of more to come.
