A forum for people with knowledge of the Bible in its original languages to discuss its manuscripts and textual history from the perspective of historic evangelical theology.
5. St Peter's and the Vatican Library etc.Connection with NT TC is: a) several original autographs must have been written somewhere nearby; b) the church celebrates and commemorates one of the original authors; c) one or two manuscripts are in the library there.
c) one or two manuscripts are in the library there.No doubt, but Codex Vaticanus is the holy grail of textual criticism. Textual critics trying to get their hands on it is a story in itself. Its unique readings, and how they found their way into the modern Textus Receptus, is another. Finally, its double-dots provide a fascinating peep into the world of the 4th-century textual critic (although some doubted).
#1 looks like munster INTF, yes?
#5 St Peter is right about St Peter #1 Yes, Ryan you're right, it is the INTF in Münster.Three more to go!Another clue: two of those are in Britain.
Awesome! What did I win? How about a copy of Royse's Scribal Habits?
Ryan, that was the easiest one ;-) (next to the Vatican).
aw, I'll settle for something by Ehrman then!
2 looks a lot like Birmingham and the base for David Parker's team
#2 Doug is correct! It is the Selly Oak campus where ITSEE is located. I wonder if the people there recognized their facility from a heavenly perspective.Only two more to go. One in Britain, and, one in Sweden!
3. Is the British Library, London. I think there are some manuscripts there. Are any of them important?
You must have a big house Tommy.
I can hear an echo.
#3 is the British Library in London. Do they have any important MSS?, hmm I think I will have to write a letter to the organizers of that conference there.
"I can hear an echo." It is of no use adding the reverb feature this time. It won't take us beyond the fifty comments.
Final clue to #4: this is the leading centre for New Testament textual criticism in Sweden. (In fact the only centre...).
I believe number four is a giant robot which has lost one arm and fallen down.
Good one Christian.
way to get a lot of comments
Peter, you mean we should once and for all prefer the shorter reading on this blog.
Just fooling around as usual.
Phew – I'm glad I got that right.
Ok. Time is out. If you haven't guessed it #4 is Örebro Theological Seminary (www.orebromissionsskola.se).The head of the robot (as per Christian's description) with a much higher roof is a church. The rest of the building is the seminary. My office = the leading centre for NTTC in Sweden :-), is located immediately below the church at the right hand. I probably sat there working when the picture was taken.
Tommy: "My office ... is located immediately below the church at the right hand. I probably sat there working when the picture was taken.Sort of exactly like the Pope's office in #5 (with him likely sitting there as the photo was taken), right?
Yes Maurice, only I am not sure that he has as much work to do.
