Scribal Habits of Codex Sinaiticus by Dirk Jongkind
Codex Sinaiticus is one of the oldest, famous, and most important manuscripts of the Bible. At least three scribes copied the text manually, and they were faced with many decisions: What do I do when I spot an error in the text I just copied? What is the right spelling of this word? Is it time for a new paragraph? This book studies a variety of textual and non-textual phenomena in Codex Sinaiticus. We discover more about this important biblical manuscript as well as the individuals with their own habits, qualities, and skill levels who produced it.


The Earliest Life of Christ Ever Compiled from the Four Gospels by J. Hill
In the second century, well before the canonical gospels took their present form, Tatian wove from the four gospels and one or more Judaic-Christian gospels one harmonized account of the life of Christ, the Diatessaron. The Earliest Life of Christ is an English translation of the Diatessaron based on the Arabic version, itself a translation from the lost Syriac.

From the 1935 edition
Format:Paperback, Black, 6 x 9 in

Discovered in 1933, a fragment of Tatian’s Diatessaron is published here with critical apparatus, a facsimile, and a transcription. The fragment, a discarded portion of a scroll with 14 surviving lines of text, was likely used in the worship of a third century CE chapel excavated at Dura Europos. As a harmony of the four canonical Gospels, Tatian’s Diatessaron is an important witness to the interpretation of the Gospels in the early church. This fragment is of significance as it represents a Greek version of a text also attested in Arabic, Latin and Dutch. Kraeling includes a table comparing these four versions. The fact that Greek is considered the original language of the text makes this manuscript fragment an essential piece of evidence for the Diatessaron as a whole. Kraeling also helpfully compares the Diatessaron with the text of the canonical Gospels.

Carl H. Kraeling (1897-1966) held a number of distinctive offices during his career. Among his notable positions were a professorship at Yale University and a period as the President of the American Schools of Oriental Research.
