University of Michigan makes St. Paul's ancient letters available for perusal on your iPad or iPhone

Saturday, January 5, 2013

You can now hold one of University of Michigan's most valuable possessions in your hands.

Well, sort of.

Thirty of the rarest, earliest leaves of the Epistles of St. Paul, dating from 180 to 220 AD, have been digitized and turned into an interactive app usable on iPhones and iPads.

"What's especially important is the direct experience with the ancient world," Arthur Verhoogt, acting archivist of the library’s papyrology collection, said of the app, called PictureIt: EP.
