      Tim Finney,

      Thanks; I had consulted that already but wasn't quite satisfied. I found the info I was looking for about the subscriptions in Sinaiticus, though, in Jongkind's book, large parts of which are available to read online for free.

      Yours in Christ,

      James Snapp, Jr.

But when the closing-titles vary -- from, say, "according to Matthew" to "according to Saint Matthew" to "The Gospel according to Saint Matthew," etc., or, in the case of John, ranging from "According to John" to "The Holy Gospel According to John the Theologian," they might be useful genetic markers, so to speak: in some cases, shared titles might indicate shared textual relationships.

It occurs to me that someone should take a very close look at the closing-titles in Aleph and confirm who wrote them. (Dirk Jongkind, do you have any info about this?) Was this something the main copyist would write? Or were the closing-titles, and the page-headings, added later on in the production of the codex, perhaps by the diorthotes as a means of keeping track of which pages he had proof-read?
