Chapter Summary

The analyses presented here of the six individual papyri cannot, of course, be viewed as an exhaustive study of even the singular readings of these manuscripts. The relations that exist between the patterns discovered in the scribes' singulars and those that might be found in their nonsingular readings should eventually be examined. Further investigation of the relations that may exist between these singulars and the state of Greek at various times, the influence of the Septuagint, the influence of Atticism, and questions of the authors' styles, could also prove to be revealing. The scribal (and translational) peculiarities of all major sources for the New Testament text should be catalogued. The chapter also provides some additional avenues of investigation into scribal habits. The goal of clarifying the history of the transmission of the New Testament text provides our incentive to ponder the habits of the scribes of the New Testament manuscripts.

Keywords: Atticism; New Testament manuscripts; scribes' singulars; Septuagint; singular readings
