New Testament Papyri Pictures Website

Post by bkknapp » May 18th, 2012, 1:28 am

Hey everyone,

I put a website together to showcase a bunch of images of the New Testament Papyri:
http://www.earlybible.com/

It has most of p46 and a bunch of other papyri, most images in high resolution, and the site is formatted for easy viewing. It even has a built-in magnifier :)

I think it's important to actually SEE the papyri for oneself because, as the site says, if you never saw the first page of P46-Ephesians, you would think it was a big deal that P46 is the earliest manuscript that leaves out "ἐν Ἐφέσῳ," but when you actually SEE the papyrus, you can't help but notice "PROS EPHESIOUS" written across the top of the page!

Let me know what you think!

I think it is great! But I have some minor suggestions:
(1) Option to turn on or off the magnifier, either through toggling by clicking or only showing when the mouse is held down.
(2) Make the header bar with "*Early Bible" thinner because it takes up a lot of space.

You can also take a look at the following to get ideas and perhaps even images (I am not sure about the copyrights though):
http://www.crosswire.org/study/parallel ... z&add=WHNU (click on a word to show textual evidence)
http://nttranscripts.uni-muenster.de/An ... +start.anv (there are some images which you don't have)
http://quod.lib.umich.edu/a/apis?rgn1=& ... elect1=all (I have no idea how to see all)
