A Bibliography of Greek New Testament Manuscripts

Third Edition


This bibliography is a comprehensive listing of books, facsimiles, collations and articles relating to some 3,500 Greek New Testament manuscripts, including references to photographic plates and albums. These are divided into the conventional categories of papyri, majuscules, minuscules and lectionaries, as classified in the current Gregory-Aland register. This third revised edition supersedes the two previous editions. Entries from those earlier editions and from three supplements, published as articles in Novum Testamentum, as well as newly published material, are to be found here.

The author is grateful for the help of editor Barbara Cangemi.

"Ce volume, dont les ressources en ligne viennent assurer de façon opportune la mise à jour, rendra service aux spécialistes du domaine, et continuera d'etre un instrument de travail incontournable permettant de guider étudiants et cherceurs au sein d'une littérature exponentielle." Etudes Theologiques et Religieuses 2018/1.

"The individual entries lay open what Elliott is consequently after: he is not interested in supplying every mention of a certain manuscript in a publication but specializes on studies explicitly dedicated to that manuscript and/or catalogues; and this keeps the collection of data so handy, thorough, and helpful at the same time."
Thomas J. Kraus, University of Zürich, A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism (2017)

"This volume facilitates research into New Testaments manusripts. It will be used widely by specialists in the field, and continues to be a significant and highly useful reference tool"
Paul Foster, University of Edinburgh, Expository Times 127

"The book can potentially save the researcher a significant amount of time and will be a worthy investment for specialists in the field. The bibliography is an unrivaled resource for advanced students and scholars seeking to locate quickly important works related to New Testament manuscripts, textual criticism, paleography, codicology, scribal habits, and art history."
Charles L. Quarles, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Southeastern Theological Review 8:1

"Since its first edition in 1989 J. Keith Elliott’s Bibliography has become an in-dispensable standard reference tool for everybody interested in New Testament textual criticism and in manuscripts with text from the New Testament (...) a splendid and very useful publication."
- Thomas J. Kraus, University of Zürich, A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism (2017). "For over a quarter of a century, Elliott’s Bibliography has rendered sterling service to the text-critical community in providing details of secondary literature arranged by New Testament manuscript (...)This expanded third edition bears witness to the recent increase in activity. In addition, further witnesses continue to be identified: the new Bibliography treats 157 more entries in the Gregory-Aland Liste than its previous edition."
