Web notes

Notes from a surf:

Comments on variant spellings in NT mss on Pantodapos. Note the similar likely spelling ημειν in P52.

Ron Smith cites Chrysostom on Junia (remember Epp's Junia: The First Woman Apostle).

JPS has now read Wegner's Student's Guide to Textual Criticism. Not enthused. He also tells us (here) that Van Seter's Edited Bible has a section on Alexandrian Homeric scribes.

Just noticed Jim Aitken's excellent Septuagint and Greek lexicography links.

Can any one make sense of Jim West's mystery cursive text?

Well, I wouldn't say I wasn't enthused. More like, if you need to teach both HB/GNT, this is good. If not, there are better ones. The bibliography is good.

On the van Seters, he argues that the Homeric "editors" didn't actually have any effect on the vulgata versions of Homer. There is no evidence that they changed the text either, they just identified questionable passages. Interesting observations, especially in light of redaction theory... I'll post more on my blog as I get further.
