Editorial Review
How the Codex was Found: A Narrative of Two Visits to Sinai From Mrs. Lewis's Journals, 1892‒1893 is a charming description of two sisters' visits to Mount Sinai on a scholarly expedition to study a Syriac version of the Gospels in the Bible. Taken from the journals of the author's twin sister, Margaret Gibson describes in detail two trips to Sinai as well as their findings. Written to quickly and simply record and publicize their journey as an effort to correct erroneous news reports, this easy-to-follow narrative is for anyone curious about Biblical research in the 19th century or the expeditions of these extraordinary twins. MARGARET DUNLOP GIBSON (1843‒1920) was twin sister to AGNES SMITH LEWIS (1843‒1926); the Semitic scholars were often referred to as the Westminster sisters for their donations to the Presbyterian Church of England and especially Westminster College, Cambridge. Between the two of them, the women learned 12 languages and became pioneers in their field. While both sisters traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East, as well as to Mount Sinai to study the earliest Syriac version of the Gospels, most of their written works are attributed to Agnes. The only written work Margaret authored was How the Codex was Found, a narrative from Agnes's journals of their two trips to Mount Sinai.
