      Dear Daniel,

      The extract below (from my edition, The Epistle of Jude: Its Text and
      Transmission, p. 130-131) explains some of the symbols you ask for
      (note the slightly different definition of Z in my edition). I hope the
      text comes out okay.

      With regards

      Tommy Wasserman

      After a Manuscript Number
      A alternative reading (coordinate with T)
      C correction (coordinate with *)
      f defective form (“Fehler”) which unequivocally supports the reading
      indicated. All errors are recorded in the apparatus, or in a list of
      errors in the Greek MSS. Exception has been made for the most frequent
      kind of vowel interchange (αι-ε, ε-η, ε-ι-η-υ-ι-οι, ο-ω).
      (*f) an originally defective form that was corrected (the defective
      form is recorded in a subsequent list regarding errors)
      (Cf) an originally correct form of a reading that was erroneously
      corrected (the defective form is recorded in the errata list of Greek
      MSS)
      K a reading in the commentary which differs from the lemma
      S supplement (only 1831S; see list of MSS)
      T the reading of the text as distinguished from an alternative reading
      (A), a reading in a commentary (K) or an additional reading (Z)
      V ut videtur (apparently). In some cases, the symbol is used when
      there are lacunae within a unit; the reader should always consult the
      list of lacunae to see if this is the case. The symbol is also used
      when one or more letters are uncertain, although it is evident which
      reading is supported.
      Z an additional reading, interlinear or marginal, that is either a
      correction or an alternative reading. It should be noted that the
      definition of Z in this edition is more precise than in the ECM: in
      order to avoid a subjective element of interpretation, I classify all
      interlinear and marginal readings as additional readings, unless the
      reading of the text is unequivocally erroneous, or if there is a sign
      known to be used for corrections. (In the list of differences between
      this edition and the ECM, all cases of different interpretation are
      noted.)
      * the reading of the first hand (coordinate with C)
      /2 lessons from Jude occur in lectionaries of the synaxarion in week 36
      of the ecclesiastical (movable) year. In a few lectionaries, L427,
      L585, L1196, L1281, there are lessons from Jude in the second part of
      the lectionary, the menologion with fixed feasts following the civil
      year (often on June 19). These latter menologion-lessons have been
      cited consistently under the sigla L427/2, L585/2, L1196/2, and
      L1281/2. (In the ECM, two lessons within the same lectionary are cited
      separately only when they differ.)

      Malcolm, for the record, the reference to Z is not a manuscript, but 2544Z means that the reading is present in 2544 and that it may be an additional reading

        Malcolm,

        for the record, the reference to Z is not a manuscript, but 2544Z means
        that the reading is present in 2544 and that it may be an additional
        reading (written in the margin or sometimes supralinearly).

        I do believe Jude is prior to 2 Peter. I devote one chapter in my
        dissertation to the subject. (And then comes a chapter on textual
        harmonization between the two letters.)

        And, finally, concerning v. 19 it seems to me that the Greek
        APODIORIZONTES (a hapax legomenon) understood as "separate" seem to
        demand the pronoun hEAUTOUS ("themselves") present in many MSS, and the
        additional emendation you refer to seems to provide a natural
        reference as to what they were separating themselves from (the unity of
        the faith, cf. v. 3). However, the verb without object can also be
        translated "cause division."

        With regards

        Dear Malcolm, I should tell you that I collated all the Greek continuous-text manuscripts containing the Epistle of Jude, some 520 + ca. 40 lectionaries, so

          Dear Malcolm,

          I should tell you that I collated all the Greek continuous-text
          manuscripts containing the Epistle of Jude, some 520 + ca. 40
          lectionaries, so there is little chance that there is anything lying
          there in uncollated Greek manuscripts anyway.

          Now to the remaining two verses - thank you for providing an English
          translation:

          v. 16: "dishonestly and lawlessly".
          This addition does reflect some Greek manuscripts that have the
          addition TH ASEBEIA KAI TH PARANOMIA (459 1838 1842 1846ZV); 467 reads
          TH ASEBEIA KAI PARANOMIA; 2544Z reads EN ASEBEIA KAI ANOMIA

          Z = correction or additional reading
          V = videtur

          The peculiar emendation was possibly influenced by the remotely similar
          phrase in v. 18 where EPIQUMIA is further specified, and possibly also
          by the passage in 2 Pet 2:16.

          v. 19: "from the unity of the faith"
          This addition I have not found in any Greek MSS.

          Good luck!

          Tommy Wasserman

            Malcolm,

            2544T does not have the addition. I have not defined the addition as a
            correction, but rather as an additional reading that is either a
            correction or an alternative reading.

            With regards

            Tommy Wasserman

              Dear Tommy,

              Thanks Tommy. I am aware of your doctoral efforts and their
              circumference.

              Mss 2544 and Z would more closely resemble the Russian adverbial
              rendering in the translation I have been reading.

              The harmonization from 2 Peter 2:16 seems probable. On another note,
              I wonder, do you think Jude was written before or after 2 Peter?:-)

              I agree that the likelihood of other uncollated mss containing these
              last two variants is slim, but I still can't come to the confidence
              that the textual transmission is without a Vorlage for either, esp
              since the testimony surrounding the efforts of Cyril and Methodius is
              so sparce.

              Thanks again,

              Malcolm

              Dear Tommy, Thanks for your clarification about the significance of Z. Would you be so kind and let us know what the variant corrects or diviates from?

                Dear Tommy,

                Thanks for your clarification about the significance of Z. Would you
                be so kind and let us know what the variant corrects or diviates from?

                Thanks,

                Malcolm

                  Thank you, Tommy, for this helpful information. I've puzzled over these
                  codes in the NT Texts Prototype on the Muenster website.

                  Can you complete this short key with a few more definitions (I can
                  guess the first two, but there seems to be some overlap):

                  T= The original text, as best as can be determined through the overwrite
                  C= The present text, written over T (like a palimpsest)
                  C2=
                  A=
                  *=

                  Daniel
