CSNTM was founded in September 2002 by noted New Testament scholar and professor, Dr. Daniel B. Wallace, to utilize emerging technologies to photograph and fully archive all known Greek New Testament manuscripts. Since the Center's founding, we have gained an international reputation for our expertise in digitization and manuscript studies. As of 2022, we have collaborated with more than 45 institutions on 4 continents to produce nearly 300,000 images from approximately 700 New Testament manuscripts. In the process, we have discovered over 75 New Testament manuscripts that were previously unknown--more than any other organization in the 21st century.
Our online library features images or links to more than 2,000 manuscripts. These images can be freely accessed at csntm.org/Manuscript -- a searchable library of Greek New Testament manuscripts. Additionally, our annual internship program invests in the next generation of New Testament scholars by training Dallas-area graduate students. Through this program, we have helped develop 30% of the rising New Testament textual scholars over the past ten years, right here in North Texas.
