Chapter Summary

Professor G. D. Kilpatrick introduced the study of palimpsest manuscripts of the Greek NT. This chapter deals with a palimpsest fragment hitherto unpublished. Not only is Cod. Zacynthius a palimpsest, it is also the oldest extant Greek NT MS. which contains a patristic catena. The transcription of the text of Cod. 0269 is taken from ultra-violet photographs of the MS. As for the textual character of Cod. 0269, conclusions based on such a fragmentary text must be made with caution. The chapter concludes that the T.R. is actually a minority reading, 0269 has appreciable but ill-defined support, and 0269 has only minor support and the variant may be merely an accident of spelling rather than a variant due to the textual tradition. In further support of the above conclusion, the W-H text differs from 0269 in six readings in which 0269 agrees with the T.R.
