Chapter Summary

As the Elzevier text as printed in 1624 and 1633 became the generally received text for centuries, many authors have paid attention to the problem of the editorship of these editions. Plausible as the assumption that Heinsius was the editor of Elzevier 1633 was, it was not corroborated by a comparison of the Elzevier text with the Greek manuscript of the Gospels which Heinsius possessed and occasionally consulted, now MS. Vatic. Reg. gr. 79 = minuscule 155. This codex which Heinsius considered, or at least praised as "antiquissimus", turned out to have played no part in establishing the text of the Elzevier Greek Testament of 1633. This means that either Heinsius did not esteem it worth while to examine an old manuscript in editing the Elzevier text, or that he did not officiate as its editor at all. This chapter shows that the latter is the case.
