And the examination to determine MSS most closely aligned with A would
involve scrutinizing the apparatus and sort of inferring where the various
witnesses listed agree with and diverge from one another (A being one)?
Wevers' "Rezensionen und Handschriftlichen-Gruppen" groups the miniscules
together in a clear way, presumably by family. But A is listed there in a
separate group "Unzialen und Papyri." This grouping seems to me one of
text form or material rather than familial alignment as determined through
similar readings or shared errors. Am I overlooking some place where he's
spoken of the text's character and aligned it with the groups he's given
for the miniscules? I don't brag about my facilities with German, but I
am able to muddle through with a dictionary. A first pass over the
introduction of this volume doesn't reveal any category into which A has
been grouped or any identification of it with other MSS which might
therefore be candidates for being copies.
