      Dear Dr. Valentin,

      I suggest you go to this website with British theses http://ethos.bl.uk/Home.do

      Then register, and search for this title by

      The Textual Tradition of the Gospel of John in Greek Gospel Lectionaries from the Middle Byzantine Period

      from 2010 by Chris Jordan,  University of Birmingham.

      This dissertation is the most recent study, and contains the large introduction you are looking for. You will also find references to other studies. 

      Apart from that, see 

      Junack K., « Zu den griechischen Lektionaren und ihrer Überlieferung der katholischen Briefe », dans Die alten Übersetzungen des NT, die Kirchenväterzitate und Lektionare, K. Aland, éd., Berlin-New York, 1972 (Arbeiten zur neutestamentlichen Textforschung, 5), p. 498-591.

      And for Catholic Epistles, see

      Amphoux, Christian-Bernard and Jean-Paul Bouhot. La Lecture liturgique des Épîtres catholiques dans l'Église ancienne. Lausanne: Éditions du Zèbre.

      And for Greek Old Testament lectionaries, you can find a lot in publications by Sysse Engberg, e.g., http://www.teol.lu.se/fileadmin/user_upload/ctr/pdf/patristik/MCPL252011.pdf

      Good luck!

      Subject: [textualcriticism] lectionary query


      Dear friends and colleagues,

      After some years of being silent but still reading the messages of this mailing list, I have a question to ask.

      I'm working on Arabic manuscrits of the Gospels and have several projects on this subject, the main one being the critical edition of one of the versions.

      In the meanwhile, I am also doing some work on the lectionaries, and that's where I need your help.

      I would need two things:

      (1) A general, basic, bibliography on the Greek lectionary (text-type, possible families, rubrics etc...) - the kind of bibliography you can't miss to have an accurrate "status quaestionis"

      (2) A specific point: many of my Arabic lectionaries present each pericope followed by a commentary - not really a homily, rather a short commentary that presents the main ideas of the pericopes and explains a few difficult passages. I'd like to know whether the genre "commented lectionary" exists also in Greek, and if suchis the case, whether the author of the commentaries has been identified. Any bibliography is welcome.

      Thank you for any help,
