Thread: 'medieval' correctors D and E

  1. Default 'medieval' correctors D and E

    A number of markings and corrections were called "medieval" and assigned to correctors D and E.

    "Later and unimportant correction hands are D and E" - Dirk Jongkind​

    "The medieval D and E correctors are of slight importance." - Skeat & Milne
    Corrector D is dated by Tischendorf to the 8th or 9th century, E to the 12th. However, these are Tischendorf dates, so they are not really based on anything substantive. We will look at a few of the spots here.


    Scrivener never saw the manuscript, so he gives us the info from the Tischendorf publication.

    A full Collation of the Codex Sinaiticus with the received text of the New Textament (1864)

    "Whose style bespeaks the 8th or 9th century ... D" - p. xxv

    E appears but three times in the New Testament, and seems fully as late as the twelfth century. - p. xxv

    "corrections .. those indicated by D and E look very black, as in Tischendorf’s Facsimiles" - p. xxxi
    Corrector E places the word "God" in 1 Timothy 3:16. "God was manifest in the flesh." ...

  2. Default Scrivener on Correctors D and E


  3. Default 1 Timothy 3:16 - manuscript and facsimile

    This is an incredibly important variant.

    There are many spots that are considered 4th century where the ink is just as black.

    Scrivener shows the facsimile from Tischendorf.

    1 Timothy 3:16
    And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:
    God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit,
    seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles,
    believed on in the world, received up into glory.

  4. Default

    Acts 3:13

    This is the third and last given to E
