TuT of Revelation

This is just a little announcement of an extensive volume which will be published soon.

The "Text and Textwert" volume of Revelation is on the way to the printing presses by De Gruyter (ANTF 49).

It will be edited by Markus Lembke, Darius Müller, and Ulrich B. Schmid in connection with Martin Karrer (head of the ECM project of Revelation housed at ISBTF, KiHo Wuppertal/Bethel).

The volume contains both the collation results of the 123 selected test passages of Revelation and the evaluation list of all available Greek manuscripts. Facilities also include a comprehensive introduction in German and Englisch (English translation was done by Garrick V. Allen) as well as six appendices which offer useful additional information to the material.


Update: Available Transcriptions of Revelation

The ECM Project of Revelation goes on well and has recently published several transcriptions: In sum, the following eight transcriptions of minuscule manuscripts are available:

  • GA 91
  • GA 93
  • GA 104
  • GA 250
  • GA 1732
  • GA 1773
  • GA 2329
  • GA 2351

There are also accessible transcriptions of three fragments: GA 886, GA 2855, GA 2924.

Outlook: Two more manuscripts are in the pipeline and will be published in the next few days: GA 1888, GA 2019

Final Transcription of Apoc 104

One small step for textual criticism, but one giant leap for the ISBTF: The Wuppertal research team published the first final transcription of a selected manuscript for the ECM of Revelation:

  • Item: GA 104.
  • Type Rev: Family 104, a mixture of Andrew and Koine type.
  • Special features of the transcription: All outline features like initials and the complete interpunction are transcribed.
  • Particularity of the manuscript: A corrector worked through the entire Apocalypse text and deleted the Ny ephelkystika of the frist hand, where they are seemingly superfluous.

Call for Papers: Divine Sonship in Jewish and Christian Antiquity

For the those interested, the St Andrews Symposium for Biblical and Early Christian Studies has announced a call for papers on the topic "Son of God: Divine Sonship in Jewish and Christian Antiquity" (6-8 June 2016). The call for papers closes mid-February and registration begins 1 December. While the conference is not devoted to textual criticism, we hope to attract some textual studies that address the topic.
