Re: [textualcriticism] critical editions of fathers
- The first places I'd check are the Sources Chretien series and the Corpus Christianorum series. The latter has 3 series, Latin, Greek, and Medieval, generally Latin.
CETEDOC includes the Latin volumes of both series.
Also, if its considered "Germanic" and falls within their time limits, MGH also frequently has such texts.

A lot of texts from the Greek Migne can be downloaded as pdf files. The

- Jim,Here is a place where Didymus apparently cites Mark 16:15-16, beginning with the reference number, then some context afterwards:
39.688 φθαρτῆς, ἀλλ' ἀφθάρτου, διὰ λόγου ζῶντος Θεοῦ καὶ μένοντος.” Ἐδεδοίκει γὰρ τὸν
παρακελευσάμενον ἐν τῷ κατὰ Μάρκον Εὐαγγελίῳ· “Πορευθέντες εἰς τὸν κόσμον
πάντα, κηρύξατε τὸ Εὐαγγέλιον πάσῃ τῇ κτίσει. Ὁ πιστεύσας καὶ βαπτισθεὶς
σωθήσεται· ὁ δὲ ἀπιστήσας κατακριθήσεται.” Τί δὲ τὸ κήρυγμά ἐστιν; “Πορευθέντες
μαθητεύσατε πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, βαπτίζοντες αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ Πατρὸς, καὶ τοῦ
Υἱοῦ, καὶ τοῦ ἁγίου Πνεύματος.” Ὅπερ καὶ Παῦλος φυλάττων ἔγραψεν· “Ἡ χάρις τοῦ
Κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, καὶ ἡ ἀγάπη τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ Πατρὸς, καὶ ἡ κοινωνία τοῦ
ἁγίου Πνεύματος, μετὰ πάντων ὑμῶν.” Ἥντινα πνευματικὴν κοινωνίαν καὶ τὰ
Καθολικὰ προκατωνόμασεν χαράγματα οὕτως· “Ἵνα γένησθε θείας κοινωνοὶ
φύσεως.” Τίνες δὲ οἱ ἀπιστοῦντες, καὶ διὰ τοῦτο κατακρινόμενοις; Οἱ ταύτην μὴ
φυλάττοντες τὴν ἰσοτιμίαν τῆς ἁγίας Τριάδος· οἷστισι καὶ αὖθις διὰ Παύλου
παρήγγειλεν ἐν τῇ πρὸς Γαλάτας ἐπιστολῇ· “Εἰσί τινες, οἵτινες ὑμᾶς θορυβοῦσι,
θέλοντες στρέψαι τὸ Εὐαγγέλιον Χριστοῦ· ἀλλ' εἰ καὶ ἄγγελος ὑμᾶς ἀπ' οὐρανοῦDavid Robert Palmer
