on profile methods to determine text type. I'd suggest examining a textual
apparatus or two of James and make a note of how the miniscule mss fall in
I am sure you will want to consider 33 and 81.

Testament_, pp 156-159, 1987 ed.
I picked out *some* in the Alands list that I noticed are textual
witnesses in James. (Look at their book for more info):
Catagory I (Alex): 33, 1241, 1739
Catagory II/mixed: 81, 323
Catagory III/independent: 88, 398 (cath), 623, 2495
Catagory IV/Beza: none
Catagory V: 'M' in text apparatus
I hope this gets you started or is what you were looking for.
