Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Although a professor of Greek and New Testament theology, Tischendorf did not restrict himself to the office or the classroom. Instead, he traveled across Europe, Africa, and the Middle East as an archaeologist, searching for any traces of ancient manuscripts. In 1844, Tischendorf made one of his greatest discoveries in the shadow of Mount Sinai— the Codex Sinaiticus, one of the oldest New Testament manuscripts, dated around AD. 360-375. In When Were our Gospels Written? Tischendorf recounts his search and discovery of the manuscript. Based on the new information yielded by that discovery, the scholar estimates dates for the composition of the Gospels. The Codex Sinaiticus remains a celebrated historical treasure, preserved in museums and prestigious libraries for future generations.
