New Testament:
Common Manuscripts: List

We are aware that many of our readers are not scholars and that some of these readers are sensitive with regard to denominational and other religious references when it comes to works of scholarship. For that reason we must point out that the term “Catholic Epistles” has nothing to do with any denomination or religion that uses the word “Catholic” in their name.

Terminology

Catholic Epistles = James, I and II Peter, I, II, and III John, and Jude

Abbreviations

a = Acts & Catholic Epistles (actus apostolorum et epistulae catholicae)
cath = Catholic Epistles (epistulae catholicae)
e = Gospels (evangelia)
p = Epistles of Paul (epistulae paulinae)
r = Revelation (revelatio)
* = Constant witness cited explicitly in critical apparatus
+ = codex mutilatus (mutilated book)
K = textus cum commentario (text with commentary)
l = lectionarium (lectionary)
VSC = VSC Code = formerly, a reference code used by a Sentry 9X virtual supercomputer
