Welcome to the Institute for New Testament Textual Research (Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung, INTF)
For decades the INTF has been recognized as the premier institute worldwide for New Testament manuscript studies and produces the Greek New Testament text from which nearly all modern Bibles are translated (Neste-Aland 28th ed./United Bible Societies 4th ed.).
Our central task is to research the textual history of the New Testament and to reconstruct its Greek initial text on the basis of the entire manuscript tradition, the early translations, and patristic citations.
Many of the resources we use in our research are available online in the New Testament Virtual Manuscript Room-- a collaborative research environment where New Testament textual scholars come to use and share resources and to contribute to the ongoing efforts for cataloging, imaging, indexing, and transcribing all known New Testament manuscript resources worldwide.
