      Three brief notes on this topic:

      (1) Du Tillet's text was linked to the western harmonized tradition by D.
      Plooij in his various publications in the 1920s and 1930s. The connexion
      rests on textual agreements. This virtually insures that a Latin *Vorlage*
      is in play. See the numerous examples in the apparatus of D. Plooij, *The
      Liege Diatessaron* (Amsterdam 1929-1970). Incidentally, this apparatus is
      one of the most useful ever constructed for the study of the gospels:
      Plooij included an enormous range of versional, commentary [gloss], and
      Patristic evidence.

      (2) On the text of Shem-Tob, see my review of G. Howard's *The Gospel of
      Matthew according to a Primitive Hebrew Text,* which appeared in *JBL* 108
      (1989), pp. 722-726, which offers eleven examples of agreements between
      Shem-Tob and the Middle Dutch tradition.

      (3) At the moment, I am finishing both a full-length article on Shem-Tob
      (in reply to the article of Shedinger in *NTS* this year), and also a
      review of Howard's second edition of Shem-Tob (*Hebrew Gospel of Matthew*).
      The review is at the invitation of *TC*, and will be available in the not
      too distant future. Again, the investigation shows that the text of
      Shem-Tob is not, in general, "primitive" or "antique," but medieval (and
      datable because of certain readings), and based almost certainly on a Latin
      *Vorlage.*

      On a totally unrelated topic: the Baarda FS will be published by Brill
      (and presented in Amsterdam) tomorrow; a list of the contents will be
      posted over the weekend, as many of the articles treat text-critical
      matters.
