Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts : Pentateuch

Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript is a copy of the <i>Pentateuch</i>, the first five books of the Bible, produced in the years around 1640, probably in England. It was the work of three different scribes, of whom the first copied the whole of the first three books, while the second handed over to the third in the middle of the last book, that of Deuteronomy. The quires bearing the third scribe's work were trimmed to two different sizes, both different from the size of those containing that of the first scribe, but it seems likely that they worked as part of the same copying project.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>All three of the scribes marked the modern chapter numbers against the text, while two of them also provided modern verse numbers. However, the layout of the text is organised according to a system of subdvisions somewhat longer than the modern verses, which have also been numbered. The basis of this system in uncertain.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
