In the Shadow of Sinai: Stories of Travel and Biblical Research

Front Cover
IN THE SHADOW OF SINAI: A STORY OF TRAVEL AND RESEARCH FROM 1895-1897 and HOW THE CODEX WAS FOUND: A NARRATIVE OF TWO VISITS TO SINAI: FROM MRS LEWIS'S JOURNALS, 1892-1893--published here in a new one-volume edition--were originally published in the late 1890's, to great acclaim. They are not only interesting and witty travelogues, but they are also a superb record of the discovery of the Syriac palimpsest, and a narrative of the journeys and adventures surrounding that research. The text describes a very remarkable variant of the reported spoken word of Jesus Christ (Matthew xii: 36), which will be of interest to all Christians and scholars.
