Minuscule Greek hand appeared around the end of the 5th or into the 6th century and yes, on Vellum for NT mss but it developed out of Greek cursive hand from centuries earlier. I was not thinking strictly of NT mss though. My point was that the classifications are clumsy since papyrus is a substrate upon which UNCIAL characters were used and uncial and minuscule (or cursice) are scripts with which any lectionary could be written.Jack----- Original Message -----From: George F SomselSent: Friday, January 05, 2007 1:05 PMSubject: Re: [textualcriticism] Re: Classifying NT ManuscriptsLet's put it this way: Comfort and Barrett mention only uncial script. Presumably that means that none of the early MSS were in minuscule. Even the major codices of scripture which date from the 4-5 cent were written in uncial.george

I have always read that all NT papyri are written with uncial script. Are you saying there are
NT papyri written in minuscule script? If so, which one(s)?
