Chapter Summary

The latest register of Greek New Testament manuscripts enables us to identify manuscripts that contain the Acts of the Apostles. The facts and figures that emerge are outlined in this chapter; details are set out in a tabular form. The lists give the officially recognised numbers of all MSS. that contain Acts complete or in part. The earliest Father to cite Acts explicitly seems to have been Irenaeus. Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Origen and Cyprian quoted Acts in the 3rd Century. Eusebius, Athenasius of Alexandria, Lucifer of Cagliari and Cyril of Jerusalem cited from Acts in the following century.

Keywords: Acts of the Apostles; Greek manuscript; Irenaeus; MSS.
