Chapter Summary

P45 is a third century codex that once formed a complete edition of the four Gospels and Acts. The manuscript's text of Mark has been described as Caesarean, where P45 agrees most closely with W of the majuscules. The writing of P45 is clear and careful, with very few lapsus calami or corrections. There are 60 significant singulars that are omissions, as well as 36 asterisked omissions. Twenty-five singular omissions, and 12 asterisked omissions, are of more than one word. Some of these omissions might be thought to be consequences of certain grammatical tendencies. Harmonization is a frequent cause of error, with harmonization to the immediate context being the most important type.

Keywords: harmonization; manuscript's text; P45
