New Septuagint Manuscripts at the Vatican

Vat.lat.81, a Latin-Greek diglot

The Vatican Library has been doing a bang-up job of digitizing manuscripts. Two new manuscripts that witness the text of the Septuagint were uploaded recently:

  • Vat.gr.316: Rahlfs 667, 10th century,  reportedly containing material from the 12 prophets & Ezekiel
  • Vat.lat.81: Rahlfs 1297, 12th century. Bilingual Latin-Greek manuscript

This data will soon be integrated into an update of the Septuagint Manuscript Explorer, a component of Logos Now. I blogged a bit about it earlier. Here’s a video with more information:
