Gospel of Thomas facsimiles on-line

Mike Grondin has scans of the facsimile edition of the Gospel of Thomas up on his website at http://www.geocities.com/mwgrondin/splitv.htm. They’re in a split screen format, so you can display his interlinear version of the text on one half of the screen and the facsimile of the text on the other half and compare them. You click on the Saying number on the right hand side of the screen to display the correct section of the interlinear. This is very cool!! Finding the corresponding text in the facsimile is a little more difficult. In his email about it to the Gospel of Thomas email list, he says:

There’s only one difficulty, and I can’t figure out how to do anything about it without a heck of a lot more work – you’ll have to count down to the correct line of the image. What I mean is this: suppose you’re looking at logion 19, for example. The page and line numbers given in the presentation indicate that it begins on line 17 of page 36 of Codex II. No problem in bringing up page 36 in the bottom half of the screen, but you will have to count down to line 17 to match it up.

A very nice tool. Thanks, Mike.
