Christian Scholarship in Byzantium and Elsewhere in the East

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Byzantine exegetical treatises generally do not focus on textual matters; however, marginal notes in Greek biblical manuscripts attest to curiosity and attention to the relation between the Greek and the Hebrew text of the Bible, as well as consciousness of textual divergencies in the manuscript tradition. The essay goes through such witnesses in order to point out traces of a philological approach to the biblical text in the Byzantine tradition.
