"after Erasmus had produced his own Greek New Testament in 1516, the Complutensian folio carrying this reading was ‘cancelled’; the replacement having inserted into it a footnote referring back to citation of this verse by the Fourth Lateran Council of 1215, with the clear intention of casting Erasmus’s text as implicitly heretical. "

Hi Tom, greetings!

This cancel-sheet theory from Michael Andrew Screech, given in Grantley Robert McDonald's paper, Raising the Ghost of Arius, on p. 88, is almost surely not correct. Grantley hinted at the problem in the footnote:

"My examination of the watermarks in the copy in the Bibliothèque nationale de France did not
reveal any conclusive evidence."

There was even a recent discussion on Twitter on this question, which really helped in the studies!

And if you, or anyone, needs the English of the Complutensian note, A. J. McDonald, Jr. placed that on his blog from William Orme.
