Biblical Fonts

The Society of Biblical Literature has collaborated with many organizations and individuals to develop fonts for biblical scholars. The SBL is currently developing a new series of high-quality fonts for digital and print use. This series includes SBL BibLit, which combines Greek, Hebrew, and Latin characters, including transliteration diacritics, SBL Greek, a Greek-specific font, and SBL Hebrew, a Hebrew-specific font.

SBL Greek Sample

SBL has an FAQ page that addresses some common font difficulties, including installation. If you cannot find an answer there you can either post a question on the forum or e-mail font support. While we welcome your questions, please consult the FAQ before emailing.
For operating system-specific directions, please see our Windows 7, Windows 8, and Macintosh OS X pages.
