I’ve just heard news that the latest issue of Biblische Notizen is published – BN 175 (2017). It contains the outcome of the third conference on biblical and early Christian studies which I co-organised in St Andrews: “Manuscripts, Their Texts, and Their Use in Biblical and Patristic Studies”.
The general aim of this thematic issue (as was that of the conference) is to sample a variety of approaches in textual criticism across some fields in Biblical Studies and in Patristics. There are nine contributions, three of them focussing respectively on manuscripts in Second Temple Judaism studies, New Testament, and Patristics.
