  2. I think some of Parker's criticisms are justified, especially with regard to the fluctuation of 3-4th century MSS in the Part 2 and the apparent lack of the discussion of the 3rd century Christian writers. I would add, though, that the MSS of Revelation can't be studied with the TuT volumes, as there are none—to my knowledge, anyway—that deal with the text of Revelation.

  3. Thanks Peter. I agree about the lack of discussion of 3d cent. writers, especially Origen. As for fluctuation of MSS, that is a more complex matter. In any case, I will explain in my blogpost what I reacted against.

  4. Looking forward to your blogspot. As for myself, I don't mind inclusion of the 4th century witnesses, but it should have been done more consistently throughout or, at least, with some sort of explicit clarification (as, e.g., in Nicklas's essay).

  5. *blogpost. (Blogcomments—especially mine—would make for a great corpus for the study of typographical errors.)

  6. Thanks, Tommy and Peter, for your comments about ETNT. Of course we would have liked to include more authors in part 3 but we were severely constrained by the word limit placed on us by OUP. The same goes for the inclusion of more 4th c mss in part 2, though a good deal of liberty was given to each contributor, according to the particularities of the book/corpus they dealt with. I hope to respond to some of Parker's misunderstandings of the book's aim and scope elsewhere.
