This book is the first-ever edition of the complete palimpsest undertext of Codex Zacynthius (Cambridge, University Library MS Add. 10062), the earliest surviving New Testament commentary manuscript in catena format. It relies on new multispectral images produced by a research project funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council in 2018.

An edition of the biblical text alone was published by Tregelles in 1861; a transcription of the catena text was made by Greenlee in the 1950s but was never published. While the project has had access to Greenlee’s unpublished papers, the new images and associated research have enabled significant improvements to both Tregelles’ and Greenlee’s texts.

This will be the first full edition of a catena on Luke since Cramer in 1844, and the first ever translation of a catena on Luke into English.
