(FREEDMAN, D.N., ed.). The Leningrad Codex. A facsimile edition. Grand Rapids/Leiden, etc., W.B. Eerdmans/Brill, (1998). li, 1016 pp. Lge-4°. Ocl. The Leningrad Codex (or Codex Leningradensis) is the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible in Hebrew, using the masoretic text and Tiberian vocalization. It is dated 1008 CE (or possibly 1009 CE) according to its colophon. The Aleppo Codex, against which the Leningrad Codex was corrected, is several decades older, but parts of it have been missing since 1947, making the Leningrad Codex the oldest complete codex of the Tiberian mesorah that has survived intact to this day.
