Item description for New Testament Manuscripts: Their Texts And Their World (Texts and Editions for New Testament Study, V. 2) by Thomas J. Kraus & Tobias Nicklas...

New Testament Manuscripts--- Their Texts and Their World comprises twelve essays dealing with manuscripts of the New Testament and/or what we can learn from them today. Starting from different angles the contributors --- distinguished scholars of international reputation --- focus on the fascinating and thrilling stories manuscripts tell, for instance about the times they were produced in or the people who handled them.

The multitude of manuscripts used for establishing the critical text of the New Testament is often only perceived as abbreviations in form of single letters or numerals, and today's biblical scholars may hardly ever take notice of the specific features of an original manuscript, above all those not mentioned in a critical edition. Therefore, three sets of contributions deals with the conditions under which manuscripts from the early days of Christianity were produced and transmitted, specific individual manuscripts, and then special features observed in and with the help of various manuscripts. In a final essay the usual method of how to organize and categorize New Testament manuscripts is challenged and an alternative method proposed.

The essays are linked with each other so that readers may get a feeling of how astounding an occupation with the original manuscripts of the New Testament and the days of the early Christians can be.
