The Codex Amiatinus is the earliest surviving complete manuscript of the Latin Vulgate Bible. Commenced in 692 and finished before 716, this tome was made in a monastic scriptorium at Wearmouth-Jarrow in Northumbria (one of three examples made based on the now lost sixth century Codex Grandior) Now in the Biblioteca Medicea Lauenziana, Florence, this complete Bible of the Latin Vulgate is considered to be the most accurate copy of Saint Jerome’s original translation.
2nd quarter of the 4th century–3rd quarter of the 4th century
Held among four institutions: St Catherine's Monastery, the British Library, Leipzig University Library, and the National Library of Russia in St Petersburg. The British Library has the largest surviving portion (347 leaves, or 694 pages) including the New Testament.
