Germany, here we come!

There are only four NT mansucripts in Australia: minuscule 662 in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria; and P91 and lectionaries l1968 and l2378 at Macquarie University.
So Australian text-critics will be pleased to hear that Australia beat Uruguay 4-2 in a penalty shoot-out to earn a place at the World Cup Finals next year in Germany (the first time since 1974), where there are many more NT mansucripts of all types.

BBC Report:

Let's hope we are drawn in the same group as Ingerland.



  1. Pete,
    Can you confirm whether it is true that antipodean textual critics have an unfair advantage at reading the underwriting of palimpsests when the writing is upside down?

  2. Whatever advantage/s they may have I would hesitate to call them unfair.
