Abstract

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and development of the Latin New Testament and a user’s guide to the resources available for research and further study. The first five chapters offer a new historical synthesis, bringing together evidence from Christian authors and biblical manuscripts from earliest times to the late Middle Ages. Each witness is considered in its chronological and geographical context, to build up the bigger picture of the transmission of the text. There are chapters introducing features of Latin biblical manuscripts and examining how the Latin tradition may serve as a witness for the Greek New Testament. In addition, each book of the New Testament is considered in turn, with details of the principal witnesses and features of particular textual interest. The three main scholarly editions of the Latin New Testament (the Vetus Latina edition, the Stuttgart Vulgate, and the Oxford Vulgate) are described in detail. Information is also given about other editions and resources, enabling researchers to understand the significance of different approaches and become aware of the latest developments. The Catalogue of Manuscripts gives full details of each manuscript used in the major editions, with bibliographical references and links to sets of digital images. The Appendices include concordances for the different ways in which manuscripts are cited in scholarly literature. An extensive reference bibliography of publications on the Latin New Testament is also supplied.

Abstract

In 2011, the European Research Council awarded Dr Hugh Houghton a Starting Grant to lead a five-year project investigating the earliest commentaries on Paul as sources for the biblical text.1 This project, known by its acronym COMPAUL, was intended to build on Dr Houghton’s doctoral work analysing Augustine’s gospel citations.2 The aim was to instigate a better understanding of commentaries and their contribution to the transmission of the New Testament in anticipation of two major editing projects: the Vetus Latina edition of the four principal letters of Paul and the Novum Testamentum Graecum Editio Critica Maior of all Pauline Epistles being planned by the IGNTP.

Abstract

The study of the New Testament text is far broader than the reconstruction
of its earliest attainable wording. As historical artefacts, manuscripts
preserve information about the context in which they were produced and
their use in subsequent generations, as well as pointing back towards an
earlier stage in the transmission process. References made by Christian
authors to the textual culture of the early Church, in addition to their
biblical quotations and more general scriptural allusions, transmit
information about the treatment of the documents as well as attitudes to
(and the form of) the canonical text at the time. The task of the modern
textual scholar is as much to map the continuity of the New Testament
tradition as to reach behind it for a primitive form which was unknown to
most later users.

Abstract

Two late eighth-century Latin gospel books have recently been identified as witnesses to the pre-Vulgate text of the Gospel according to John. In this article, their text of Mark is analysed and shown also to contain significant Old Latin material notwithstanding their general affiliation to the Vulgate. VL 11A (Würzburg, Universitätsbibliothek M.p.th.f. 67) has an unaltered Old Latin portion between Mark 10:30 and 11:5 and earlier readings throughout the manuscript. There are a number of unique or poorly-attested variants, including de publico in 7:4 and cum omni sollicitudine in Mark 14:44 which may give some clues about the origin of the text. VL 9A (St Petersburg, National Library of Russia F.v.I.8) has a mixed text with a significant proportion of Old Latin readings in Mark 10-14. Some of these are only paralleled by VL 1 (Codex Bobiensis) and represent a very early Latin version. In certain introductions to direct speech, this is the only Latin witness which corresponds to the earliest Greek form of text. It is also suggested that the Durham Gospels (or a closely related manuscript) may have been used to adjust VL 9A towards the Vulgate. A critical apparatus is provided for Mark in each manuscript.

Abstract

The textual tradition of the Bible has inspired many of the most significant
developments, principles and methodologies in editorial practice, from the
parallel texts and critical symbols of Origen’s Hexapla in the early third century
to Lachmann’s nineteeth-century stemmatics. It is therefore unsurprising that,
in this digital age, the New Testament continues to be at the forefront of new
and exciting initiatives. The present chapter describes the workflow and tools
developed for the Editio Critica Maior of the Greek New Testament, in particular
those associated with the Workspace for Collaborative Editing, and how
these have shaped the task of editing both the text and documents of the New
Testament and offer new models of publication thanks to the capacity of electronic
media and the Internet.
