Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses several supplementary notes for this book. The only early Greek New Testament manuscript for which a female scribe has been suggested is Codex Alexandrinus, which was written, according to statements by Cyril Lucar and an Arabic inscription in the codex, by Thecla the martyr. In 1820 Goethe wrote a brief article concerning errors in an earlier work of his that he had dictated, and tried to distinguish errors that arose by mishearing during dictation from errors that arose during printing. By the way, a quick survey suggests that Freud is more consistent than the "authorized" English translation indicates; indeed the translator seems sometimes simply to alternate "error" and "mistake" for the sake of variety.
