Hello I am looking for a NT easy to read HTML majuscule /Uncial, preferably not a Textus Receptus, but a UBS or Nestle Aland / not a facsimile like the codex sinaitcus online. Thank you

Welcome to B-Greek!

First a little housekeeping ... we use real names here, not pseudonymns, so if you want to continue to post, please contact me or one of the other moderators to change your user name.

As to your question ... I'm not quite sure what you are looking for. If you want to read the NA28 for free online, you can do that here:

NA 28

The UBS is here:

UBS 5

The Septuagint is here:

LXX

There are a variety of other places to see the Greek text of the New Testament, with advantages and disadvantages, depending on what you need. Here is one:

My guess is that you aren't actually looking for majuscules / uncials.
A New Testament uncial is a section of the New Testament in Greek or Latin majuscule letters, written on parchment or vellum. This style of writing is called Biblical Uncial or Biblical Majuscule.

If you are, let us know, and we can steer you that direction. But the first image above is Codex Sinaiticus, which is an uncial.

ΕΓΕΝΕΤΟ ΣΟΙ ΤΥΧΗΝ ΣΗΜΕΡΟΝ, Ω ΦΙΛΕ! You're in luck today, friend! Here's a site with the NA 26/UBS 3 text, with optional display in all caps, which will give the uncial look: The Online Greek Bible, http://www.greekbible.com/index.php. On the index page, after you pick your Scripture reference, there is a an all caps button. Click on it and slide it to the right. Then click the Go button. Your desired Bible passage will display in all caps/uncials! Unlike uncial manuscripts, though, there are spaces between words. :D

Despite the site name (Online Greek Bible), it just has the New Testament. The Septuagint isn't included.

P.S. The uncial look does not include an uncial-style font, so it won't look exactly like one of the manuscripts that Jonathan showed samples of. So, no lunate sigma (C for Σ), for instance. If that's the look you're after, the Online Greek Bible site does let you copy their online text so you can paste it into your word processor. You can then change the font. The Εταιρεία Ελληνικών Τυπογραφικών (Greek Font Society) has some free sets of majuscule (uncial fonts) representing the styles of MSS from the earliest period to the 5th to 7th centuries.

Like Jonathan, I'm not entirely sure if this what you're asking, but you might try Alan Bunning's Center for New Testament Restoration at https://greekcntr.org/collation/index.htm

About four years ago I decided I wanted to read the GNT in uncial script for my daily reading.

So I "made" a GNT from the Robinson Byz GNT and had it bound. Was actually kind of cool, if you are into UNCIAL. I put spaces between words and verse numbers, so not quite "authentic."

Here is a link to the pdf https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8pzbh7v515x4 ... BGf9a?dl=0

Maybe someone will find it interesting.

Hi Tim,

Definitely a cool edition! Thanks for sharing. A slight correction, though: you have Η ΚΑΙΝΕ ΔΙΑΘΗΚΗ for the title. ΚΑΙΝΕ should be ΚΑΙΝΗ.
