Nearly a century has passed since Henry A. Sanders first published his editio princeps of the Washington Manuscript of the Epistles of Paul (Codex I or GA 016). Within that time, it has received very little scholarly attention. This new edition provides a fresh, conservative transcription based on two new image sets. It additionally provides comprehensive lists of variants between Codex I, Nestle-Aland 28, and Robinson Pierpont (a text that is representative of the Byzantine text of the Greek New Testament). The new edition also provides valuable data surrounding the manuscript’s provenance, character, scribal habits, textual affiliation, and substantive variants. Several corrections to Sanders are offered, and the new transcription shows the effects of nearly a century of decay upon the manuscript. This work seeks both to update Sanders and to provide valuable data that will make the text of Codex I more readily accessible for future inquiry.

"Anyone who now wishes to refer to the readings of this codex will want to make the edition of Soderquist and Wayment their first stop."
