The Leningrad Codex

A Facsimile Edition

Edited by Astrid B. Beck, David Noel Freedman and James A. Sanders

The oldest complete Hebrew Bible in the world is the Leningrad Codex. Housed in the Saltykov-Shchedrin State Public Library in St. Petersburg, Russia, and dating to 1009 C.E., the Leningrad Codex stands as the single most important extant manuscript for establishing the text of the Hebrew Bible and is the basis for virtually all critical editions of the Hebrew Bible.
In a landmark publishing event in biblical scholarship, the Leningrad Codex is now available for the first time in a facsimile edition. This beautiful scholar's edition of the Leningrad Codex, produced under the auspices of the University of Michigan in cooperation and consultation with the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center and West Semitic Research Project, features a high quality 25,4 x 30,5 cm. hardcover format that includes sixteen full-color illuminated carpet pages that capture in precise detail the Codex's lovely medieval artwork.
