      The Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) is pleased to announce that five of the New Testament manuscripts discovered and photographed in Albania in 2007 have now received Gregory-Aland numbers from the Institut für neutestamentliche Textforschung in Münster. The designations for these manuscripts have been changed accordingly on the "Manuscripts" page of the Center's website (www.csntm.org). The announcement, posted below, will be available on the website shortly.

      Five Albanian Manuscripts Cataloged by INTF
      Jeff Hargis
      Wednesday, January 13, 2010

      In 2007, the Center photographed the collection of New Testament manuscripts at the Albanian National Archives in Tirana, Albania. Some of these were already cataloged in the Kurzgefasste Liste der griechishen Handschriften des Neuen Testaments (the "K-Liste"), while many others were previously unknown to scholars. In addition, the identities of several of the manuscripts remain uncertain as they have not been examined thoroughly for many decades, if at all.

      Since the time we made these discoveries, CSNTM, with the assistance of other scholars as well as the Institut für neutestamentliche Textforschung (INTF, translated as Institute for New Testament Textual Research) in Münster, Germany, have been working to clarify the identity of all of the Albanian manuscripts and to assign new catalog numbers to those whose existence was previously unknown.

      We are pleased to announce that INTF has now assigned Gregory-Aland Numbers to five of the manuscripts from the Albanian National Archives as follows:

      ANA 7 = GA lect 2439
      ANA 11 = GA lect 2440
      ANA 13 = GA lect 2441
      ANA 16 = GA lect 2442
      ANA 77 = GA lect 2443

      On the "Manuscripts" page of the CSNTM website, these five manuscripts have been reassigned from their original status as "not yet cataloged" to their new designation as cataloged lectionaries. The Center is grateful to INTF for their work in cataloging these new manuscripts.
