Vercelli is an ancient town in Piedmont, northern Italy, situated in the plain of the river Po between Milan and Turin. It was founded, according to most historians, around the year 600 BC. The world’s first university funded by public money was established in Vercelli in 1228. Vercelli Cathedral (Duomo di Vercelli) was erected and enlarged by Saint Eusebius of Vercelli in the 4th century. In the cathedral at Vercelli there is an early manuscript (Codex Vercellensis) of the oldest Latin Gospels before St Jerome’s Vulgate, called the “Vetus Latina”. It is generally agreed it was written by Eusebius. In Vercelli was living Saint Augustine (Aurelius Augustinus Hipponensis, 354 – 430), the biggest Christian theologian and philosopher whose writings influenced the development of Western philosophy.

    Greetings!
    I am looking for images or pictures of the Codex Vercellensis. There must be some somewhere to preserve such a holy and historical Bible. Surely the library where it is kept has some. Do you know where I can find them so I can see them?
    Thank you.
    Respectfully,
    RJ

      Greetings,
      nice to hear that somebody interested in the Book. I think I wrote in the post where is this beautiful book: “In the cathedral at Vercelli there is an early manuscript (Codex Vercellensis) of the oldest Latin Gospels before St Jerome’s Vulgate, called the “Vetus Latina”.” You have only to go to Vercelli – wonderful town of bishops.
      Sincerely,

        Thanks for the reply. But, I meant are there any images of the whole book online? Going to Vercelli is not possible. My wife is bedridden.
