Re: [Synoptic-L] Tatian's Diatessaron
I don't know the answer to your questions, but they are very interesting
questions. To the best of my knowledge, the definitive work on Tatian in
English is now the following by William Lawrence Petersen. In seeking an
answer to your questions, I would start here and with the other books that
Petersen has written relating to Tatian.
