Re: Tregelles GNT online
- Maybe superfluous for the members of the list:
Tregelles' original is to be downloaded from:
are the Prolegomena and Addenda and Corrigenda compiled by Hort.
Hort on p. xxxi:
It is hardly necessary to add that here as elsewhere, for instance in the selection of extracts for the Prolegomena, I have been careful not to allow any critical views of my own to exercise influence over the handling of the materials before me. It was a clear duty to aim at making this concluding Part as exclusively representative of Dr. Tregelles's own purposes and views as its predecessors, whether I agreed with them in all respects or not. On the other hand the task would have been embarrassing, and perhaps unbecoming, had we differed fundamentally about the comparative merits of the various authorities for the text of the New Testament.
