The third of the three greatest document-treasure of Christianity is the Alexandrian Manuscript. This ancient manuscript is a 5th century copy of the whole Greek Bible, with the exception of forty lost leaves. It was the first of the three famous and ancient manuscripts to become known, being presented as a gift to King Charles I of England in 1627, sixteen years after the completion of the King James Version of the Bible. Like the Sinaitic Manuscript, it too resides today in the British museum in London.
