The Goodspeed New Testament Manuscript Collection

The Goodspeed Collection of New Testament Manuscripts comprises 65 items that range in date from the 7th to the 19th centuries. The acquisition of these hitherto unknown manuscripts was spearheaded by Edgar J. Goodspeed in the first half of the twentieth century in order to support new scholarship in the humanities. The Library plans to continue the scholarly tradition of the collection by creating a collection of high-quality digital images from the 65 New Testament manuscripts and an additional 100 papyri fragments in order to support new types of research and teaching made possible by digital technologies. The project is a collaborative effort of University of Chicago faculty and the Library and NSIT Digital Media Lab staffs. During the project''s initial phase, funds will be used to digitize the Rockefeller McCormick New Testament, MS 965 and the Archaic Mark, MS 972, which Professor Margaret Mitchell will use on her Chalk site for her course on the Gospel of Mark, Spring 2004.
