About

The course offers an introduction to manuscripts and other textual witnesses of the biblical tradition, to canonised as well as apocrypha, and other non-canonised texts in their original language. The student will be familiar with with individual manuscripts in facsimile as well as critical editions, while studying the principles behind the text editions.
