1897New ENTTC articles
- Mar 3, 1997What follows is blatant slef-promotion. If this list weren't so quiet,
I wouldn't do it, but we're hardly overburdening your mailboxes. :-)
I doubt the experienced textual critics on this list will care, but
I've updated my articles at the Encyclopedia of NT Textual Criticism
site. Specifically, I have now included detailed descriptions of all
the minuscules "cited constantly" in NA26 and NA27 for the Pauline
and Catholic Epistles. In the case of many of these manuscripts
(630, 1505, 1506, 1881, 2464, 2495, etc.), this is the only
serious assessment of these available other than the Alands' very
basic "Category" ratings.
The articles aren't all that I had hoped; I often was not able to
compile a decent bibliography, and in many cases I had only the
information provided in the Nestle citations to work with. But
I have spent years working over those collations; I thought less
experienced people might like the benefit of that experience.
I also tried to make the results reasonably unbiased -- e.g. I
would describe a manuscript as "more Alexandrian" or "more
Byzantine" rather than "better" or "worse."
Also, I included some additional links which I hope will make
things easier to use.
I remind people that Rich Elliott (REElliott@...) is the
editor of the ENTTC, and that questions should be addressed to
him. (I should also note that he has *not* vetted these articles. :-)
But if anyone wants to post an article to the online site, feel
free to contact me. Maybe it will force me to change my sarcastic
