Re: Digging Deeper With Umlauts
- Mark Thunderson:
Yes; the umlauts were made with the same apricot-colored ink that the
text was written in. P. B. Payne goes into some detail to emphasize
this point in the course of one of his essays about the umlauts,
which are accessible online at Wieland's page about Vaticanus.
Just because the umlauts and the text were written with the same kind
of ink does not force the conclusion that the umlauts and the text
were written by the same person, or even at the same place, though.
It may have been a commonplace ink at the time.
Does anyone know of any other MSS with apricot-tinted ink?
