Biblical Fonts
SBL collaborated with a number of organizations and individuals to develop fonts for biblical scholars. The SBL Font Series includes SBL Greek, a Greek-specific font, SBL Hebrew, a Hebrew-specific font, and SBL BibLit, which combines Greek, Hebrew, and Latin characters including diacritics needed for transliteration characters. The fonts are free for download and personal use.
