The Beauty of Books

A folio from the Codex Siniaticus

Looking forward to the new 4-part documentary series that starts on BBC4 this evening, The Beauty of Books. The first episode, ‘Ancient Bibles’ features the fourth-century Codex Sinaiticus and the fabulous twelfth-century Winchester Bible – and Dr de Hamel.

The episodes were filmed in various libraries, including the BL and St John’s College, Oxford.
