Re: [textualcriticism] von Soden key
- I don't have that booklet, but you might find the appendices in Aland's Kurzegefaßte Liste useful for converting to and from the von Soden numbers.Stephen--Stephen C. Carlson, Ph.D. (Duke)Post-Doctoral Fellow, Theology, Uppsala
I was helping a student today work through the apparatus for an assignment in an introductory exegesis class.
We were looking up manuscripts in Appendix I in the NA28 and came across what looks like a potential typo (p. 813).
The table states that ms.1841 contains ap† *R, while the NA27 has ap (*)r.
Now I know it’s minor, but shouldn’t the NA28 have an r rather than an R? Typically the R points to “Romans” but in this case, the * indicates that the 1841 is a consistently cited witness for Revelation (which if used in Appendix I is typically a lowercase ‘r’, unless indicated in a string of exceptions, where it is abbreviated Ap).
This is the kind of thing that causes quite a hiccup for librarians helping seminary students new to TC (especially when the librarian is new to the NA28). ;^)
