Chapter Summary

The mss tradition of TD is very rich. Seventy one mss with the text of TD were identified, of which five have a partial text. This chapter provides a detailed analysis of mss relationships and explains the basis of how the sigla were chosen and assigned, as well as further clarifies which ms(s) from each group were maintained in the critical apparatus. In order to build a chain and a stemma of manuscripts relationships the author has used methods of cladistics research applied to text genealogy. The B family can be divided into two initial groups: one comprised of mss dYy (here called the dgroup) and one comprised of mss Bbb1b2DEE1IJPP1 SS1 (which are marked with the siglum Bg2). While mss within the B family fit into various groups and sub-groups quite neatly, the same cannot be said about the A family.
