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 images of the Leningrad Codex in color are now in the InscriptiFact Digital Image Library.
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, published in 1998 a
facsimile edition of the Leningrad Codex using the photographs taken in
1990. The facsimile was 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. At this time the facsimile edition is out of print.
