- 43 leaves of the Manuscript were discovered by Constantin von Tischendorf in May of 1844 at the Monastery of St. Catherine at Mount Sinai (pictured above)
- The principal portion of the Manuscript was discovered by Tischendorf at the same location in February of 1859
- More than a dozen additional leaves were discovered on 26 May 1975 after the clean up of a fire at the Monastery resulted in finding them buried underneath the rubble a ceiling collapse had caused more than 200 years earlier
- The Manuscript is the oldest complete manuscript of the New Testament that exists today. It dates from the fourth century and extensive studies of it have verified the antiquity and quality of its text.
