Re: How many times is the 'D' category is used in NA27? (Answer=9)
- Thank you Wieland + Ron for your very prompt replies.
I followed up Wieland's reference and then a "chain" which led me to
Kent D Clarke's summary article 'Textual Certainty in UBS' Greek NT',
Nov.Test.,44:2, Apr.2002,p.105, which has a summary table (p.113),
much like Ron's but easier to read! This table lists the number of
ABCD's in each book by each edition of UBS4.
A=514, B=541, C=367 + D=9
These numbers are slightly different from those in Ron's email:
A=513, B=539, C=366 + D=9 (also for UBS4), so I'm slightly puzzled but
my question is answered.
Once again many thanks,
- In his article ('Textual Certainty in UBS' Greek NT', Nov.Test.,44:2,
Apr.2002) Kent D Clarke gave the following figures: A=514, B=541,
C=367 + D=9
These differed from those in Ron's email: A=513, B=539, C=366 + D=9.
Reading thru' KDC's footnotes (n12,p109-110 in particular) I
discovered that he points out the figures 'are in small discord with
the [UBS's] figures.' Clarke puts this down to the UBS counting
'passages' rather than 'individual letter-rated variants' which he
So that's all the i's crossed and t's dotted (sic)!
