reading?? ;-)) ). Van Bruggen wrote a little book entitled "The Ancient Text of
the New Testament" where he presents his case in favour of the Byz text. As for
Wisselink, his thesis re. Assimilation gives good support for the Byz text. I
don't remember if he comes out and says that he considers this text-type to be
_the_ best, but he certainly presents a case against Fee et al as to the alleged
inferiority of the Byz tradition

his own position.:
"I think Burgon's wholesale disparagement of Codex Vaticanus as 'the most
corrupt of all copies' quite unreasonable. On this head we have held many a
conflict, without either of us yeilding an inch. You will see that I stand
midway between the two schools, inclining much more to Burgon than to Hort."
This quote is from Burgon's biography by Edward M. Goulburn (which I may add was
_not_ quoted by Wallace in his paper "Historical Revisionism and the Majority
Text Theory: The Cases of F.H.A. Scrivener and H. C. Hoskier" in NTS 1995).
I see now that Robinson has himself posted on the TC-LIST, so I will let him
answer for his GNT.
