Tarrant: "Texts, Editors, and Readers"

Post date: Apr 3, 2017 8:48:28 AM

In recent weeks, I have greatly enjoyed reading Richard Tarrant, Texts, Editors, and Readers: Methods and Problems in Latin Textual Criticism (Cambridge: CUP, 2016). Although this is devoted to the editing of Classical Latin texts, there is much which might interest those studying the Latin New Testament. In particular, Tarrant has an illustrated discussion of different types of critical apparatus and an Appendix on "Reading a critical apparatus" with a helpful glossary and a list of Latin names for manuscript locations.
