Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the role that Internet can play in relation to the study of the Arabic manuscripts of the New Testament, and explores some related issues raised by that role. The Internet allows for the emergence of collaborative work, like the best-known example of the successful encyclopedia Wikipedia. This 'wikiculture' has much to contribute to the field of New Testament textual criticism. An example of collaborative work specific to the Arabic manuscripts of the New Testament is the project started by a team of the University of Balamand in Lebanon: the elaboration of a platform for the study of the manuscripts of the New Testament. The CSNTM is an independent Christian Center led by professors of New Testament, wishing to provide the largest number of manuscripts for researchers and preserve them by digitalizing.
