Chapter Summary

This appendix presents the unit delimitation data relevant ot the discussion on Codex Alexandrinus presented in this book A Study of the Gospels in Codex Alexandrinus. In the Gospels, Alexandrinus stands at the headwaters of the Byzantine text type and contains the earliest extant example of the Old Greek chaptering system. It is one of the three oldest complete Greek Bibles (including the fourth-century codices Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus) and is a primary witness to the biblical texts. The codex has been brutalized by binders, survived at least one fire, and suffered the loss of a number of pages, and with an improperly prepared writing surface, its ink is slowly eating through some of its pages and turning them into lacework.

Keywords: Codex Alexandrinus; Codex Sinaiticus; Codex Vaticanus; Gospel; unit delimitation data
