Re: [textualcriticism] Chicago’s “Archaic Mark ” (ms 2427) II - a forgery
- Thanks for the reference, although the team from CSNTM did not photograph the Goodspeed Collection at the University of Chicago (which includes GA 2427). However, the images of 2427 can be viewed at the website of the Collection at the following location:Jeff HargisField DirectorCenter for the Study of New Testament ManuscriptsOn Sat, Apr 3, 2010 at 6:28 AM, hglogowski <hglogowski@...> wrote:
At the risk of 'drizzling(sic) on the parade' (the very welcome news of 'New Posting of Chicago Manuscripts at CSNTM') I nevertheless thought it timely to draw attention to the following just published article:
'Chicago's "Archaic Mark" (ms 2427) II Microscopic, Chemical and Codicological Analyses Confirm Modern Production', Authors: Mitchell, Margaret M.1; Barabe, Joseph G.2; Quandt, Abigail B.3
Source: Novum Testamentum, Volume 52, Number 2, 2010 , pp. 101-133(33)
Comprehensive testing and analysis (microscopic, chemical and codicological) of University of Chicago ms 972-Gregory-Aland ms 2427 confirms that it is a modern production made sometime between 1874 and the first decades of the 20th century.
