Aleppo and Leningrade Codices Online

Postby Jason Hare » Sat Jun 08, 2019 11:54 pm

The Aleppo Codex is viewable online at http://www.aleppocodex.org/newsite/index.html.

You can also download the Aleppo Codex and the Leningrad Codex on the Internet Archive at here and here, respectively.

These are amazing resources to have for study of the Hebrew Bible.

Of course, the Great Isaiah Scroll is online, too!

We live in an exciting time!!

Jason,

The first link is strange. I just get a "konsoleH::Login" page, no manuscript. :-(

Yes, when I tried going to the Aleppo website, Firefox produced a warning message: "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead".

John,

Yes, Chrome also complained. That's because they use the deprecated http protocol, rather than the recommended encrypted https protocol.

When I went past the warning, then I got this login page.

I'm hoping Jason has a solution. ;-)

On Safari for Mac, I get this warning: "This connection is not private.This website may be impersonating "www.aleppocodex.org" to steal your personal or financial information."

But, I got it to work on Chrome for Mac, after having to manually enable Adobe Flash (which, however, will no longer be supported by Adobe after 2020). Hopefully the webmaster will update the site's tech to use an alternate media player, and to play nice with other browsers.

Dewayne,

So were you able to view the codex, or did you get the funky login page?

Hi Kirk,

Yes, I could view it. I didn't spend a lot of time playing with the controls, but yes, I could see it. I didn't get a login page at all. There is a sidebar on the right that has menus to select a book of the Bible and then a chapter. It has a zoom control for the MS pages, and also controls to turn the pages of the MS. Now that I have a way to see it, I'm sure I'll go back and spend more time there. Not sure yet if I'll have to manually enable Flash each time. If so, I can live with that.

Perhaps use the full URL to access it: http://www.aleppocodex.org/newsite/index.html.

@Kirk: Can you edit the OP to include the full link instead of the truncated version?

Yes, for whatever reason you do have to enable Flash each time. Frustrating, but manageable.

The Aleppo Codex is my favorite manuscript of the Bible. I wish we had all the missing folios from the codex.

My favorite print Bible (the Jerusalem Crown [כתר ירושלים]) was designed after the Aleppo Codex. I love my copy dearly.

Even the name was taken from the Aleppo Codex, which is called כֶּ֫תֶר אֲרַם צ֫וֹבָא in Hebrew; hence, כֶּ֫תֶר יְרוּשָׁלַ֫יִם. Originally, a keter was an exemplar to which comparison of other copies should be made. This keter has an amazing history, and the fact that we have it today adds so much value to our knowledge of the biblical text by the end of the first millennium of the era.

Jason,

I adjusted the Aleppo site as requested. And it indeed worked. Using Chrome, which disables Flash be default, I got a page to activate Flash. Violá! There it is. YMMV with other browsers.

May I ask an amplification: why the Jerusalem Crown is your favorite? Given how damaged Aleppo is, what text do they use to supplement the missing pages? Aleppo plus text from some other manuscript/edition?
