      Thank you everyone for your contributions on this. I'm quite grateful especially to have learned about the Pericope Group, their print series, and their digital projects: http://www.pericope.net/  It is good to see a whole community of scholars take ancient textual divisions as an important way to understand how texts were read in the premodern era.

      Best wishes,

      Yes, the most detail I’ve seen on division numbers in Sinaiticus is Dirk Jongkind’s book. See http://books.google.ca/books?id=5PbDoZSYppEC&pg=PA120

      I'd be interested too, but haven't found much. For the Latin tradition there is:

      Bruyne, Donatien de. Sommaires, divisions et rubriques de la Bible latine. Namur: A. Godenne, 1914.

      I have never been able to locate this anywhere. It is clear though, that the Latin tradition has taken over some of the Greek systems. I wrote a little about it in my Sinaiticus book.

      Codex Sinaiticus has marginal chapter numbers for various prose books (e.g., Isaiah, Judges) that appear to be original to the manufacturing of the codex. Does anyone have one or more studies to recommend that explain the origins and development of such numbering systems in the manuscript tradition for the "prose" LXX books?
