1445Re: [lxx] Lucian's LXX
- Nov 9, 2004Thank you all for your helpful comments!
I take it then that there is no such thing as a "majority text" of the
LXX, not even a standard lectionary text of the LXX? This is very
interesting, because it is in strong contrast to the NT. I think this
cries for an explanation.
So, can we say that there were two broad transmission lines, the
Hexaplaric and the Lucianic and that a lot of mixture and variation
happened between them?
Have all the 1500+ MSS been test-collated to identify their type? How
many groups or sub-groups have been identified? Or is it all chaos?
Probably I have to read some more about this. I am surprised about my
ignorance in this matter. :-)
