VI-4 Ordinis sexti tomus quartus

Novum Testamentum ab Erasmo Recognitum, IV, Epistolae Apostolicae (secunda pars) et Apocalypsis Iohannis

Series:

Edited by A.J. Brown

In 1516 Erasmus produced the first printed Greek New Testament ever to be published: his series of editions laid the foundation for the “'Textus Receptus'”, which has had an enduring influence. Alongside the Greek text, his new Latin translation marked a radical departure from the medieval Vulgate. This volume edits Erasmus'’ Greek and Latin New Testament text (1 Timothy-Apocalypse), presented in two parallel columns, above a critical apparatus showing the variants of the five folio editions (1516-1535). The accompanying commentary analyses the printed and manuscript sources, and assesses the accuracy and also the defects of Erasmus' work. An extended introduction includes new information and discussion regarding the codex Montfortianus and the famous passage about the '“three heavenly witnesses”'.

Erasmus' Annotations on the New Testament

Galatians to the Apocalypse. Facsimile of the Final Latin Text with All Earlier Variants

Series:

Desiderius Erasmus

Edited by Anne Reeve

Erasmus' revolutionary Latin and Greek New Testament of 1516 was accompanied by annotations intended to be brief but which were already challenging and often discursive. This edition gives them with all their variants.
The years 1519, 1523, 1527 and 1535 saw those notes grow and grow in number, size and importance. Some treat just those vital minutiæ which led Aquinas, say, into error or folly when he ignored or neglected them: others form ever-expanding essays spreading over several pages and bringing Erasmus into the centre of controversy.
Here, for the first time ever, the annotations are edited and dated. They now form an indispensable companion to Erasmus' letters as a major source of our knowledge of the nuances and development of his thought and scholarship.
