About the Authors
  • This book comprises a general survey of the study of New Testament manuscripts, and outlines for students of the New Testament the basic tools and skills involved in studying those manuscripts. The present edition is a thoroughly revised and updated version of Leon Vaganay's Initiation á la critique du Nouveau Testament, published in 1933, and each section of that original work has been brought up to date in light of the latest research in the field. In its aim to provide a solid foundation to study of New Testament textual criticism, this comprehensive survey will be of great value to those who are looking for basic information about the subject; while the documentary information it contains about the extant manuscripts, and its original theoretical sections, will ensure that the book has much of value to offer the more advanced student of the New Testament.

    • This is a handbook which will prove invaluable to large numbers of NT scholars and students
    • Textual criticism is a fundamental component of biblical studies, and its basic tenets need to be understood by students when they tackle Greek NT texts
    • While providing basic information about the subject, it gives additional information about NT manuscripts which should prove to be of interest to more advanced scholars
