PaleoJudaica points us to a Washington Post article about an exhibit soon to open in the capital. “In the Beginning: Bibles Before the Year 1000″ begins in October at the Smithsonian’s Arthur M. Sackler Gallery. “The manuscripts on display will include material from the Dead Sea Scrolls, from the Aleppo Codex, from the Cairo Geniza, and from the Oxyrhynchus Papyri. And both the Greek and the Coptic manuscripts of the Gospel of Thomas will be included.” All the Good News that fits. The exhibit is scheduled to run October 21 to January 7.
