New article on VL 67

Post date: Dec 23, 2015 11:25:13 AM

David Ganz has just passed on an offprint of his article on the León palimpsest, which should be added to the bibliography of VL 67. He draws attention to the marginal notes, which indicate that the manuscript was produced for study rather than liturgical use, and suggests that the semi-uncial script may point to an African origin. There is a full description of the manuscript and its contents, as well as two fine images. The bibliographical reference is:
