Thread: sense-line homoeoteleutons fit with Claromontanus as source for Sinaiticus

  1. Default sense-line homoeoteleutons fit with Claromontanus as source for Sinaiticus

    This was a rather amazing discovery.
    Right in the sweet spot of the textual critics.

    And this leads to a number of pages, which right now focus on four cases. (There are more.)

    §40. Codex Claromontanus (DP), in Paris, contains the thirteen Pauline Letters, then the so-called Canon Claromontanus, which will be described momentarily, and after that, probably added later, the Letter to the Hebrews. Again, the manuscript is bilingual, with the Greek on the left and the Latin on the right, and the pages are written colometrically, with twenty-one lines on the page (for sample pages of Greek and Latin, see Vogels, Specimina, Pis. 20-21). In this case the Latin is relatively independent of the Greek, and has been shown to be for the most part identical with the Latin text used by Lucifer of Cagliari in Sardinia in the fourth century (Souter p. 26). The so-called Canon Claromontanus, which stands in this manuscript immediately after the Letter to Philemon, is an incomplete list of the books of the OT and the NT, together with the number of lines in each. Written here in Latin, the list may go back to a Greek original of around A.D. 300. In its NT portion the list is reproduced in Souter pp. 194f. Reference in the Canon to the number of lines in a book is with the Latin word versus ...
    So now, New Testament science will have to theorize that sense-lines, generally seen as a late Greek-Latin diglot phenomenon, occurred much earlier in the Greek transmission line. However, the "scholars" have been so busy trying to shore up Sinaiticus authenticity that they showed no interest in the textual phenomenon of these homoeoteleutons!

    The Canon Claromontanus may have helped guide the Sinaiticus book order.
