Cambridge University 'hope' for biblical manuscript bid

Posted at 8:04AM Wednesday 15 Jan 2014

Cambridge University has said an appeal to raise £1.1m to buy an early Biblical manuscript it has held for 30 years is "progressing well".

The Codex Zacynthius, which dates back to the 6th or 7th Century, has been in the university's library since 1984.

Now its owner - the Bible Society, in Swindon - is offering the manuscript for sale in order to raise money.

Anne Jarvis, university librarian, said they were hopeful of raising the money before a 28 February deadline.
