Thank you British Library!

Holy koine! The British Library has just digitized and made publicly available almost 300 ancient Greek manuscripts in their collection! For ancient-language and old-book lovers like us, this is seriously ترنجبين from heaven. If you ever wanted to check out the pages of the Theodore Psalter up close and personal, now's your chance.

There is unfortunately no way to browse their new additions, so you kind of have to know what you're looking for among all the rest of their (admittedly amazing) digitized manuscript collection. But whatever. This is amazing any way you slice it.
