Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ... chapter ii the apparatus chiticus of the new testament crekft mss. The apparatus criticus is the whole collection of documents which is at the disposal of the critic. It consists ultimately entirely of Mss., though practically a large proportion of them can be used conveniently and adequately through printed editions. These Mss. fall into four groups: --(1) Greek Mss. (2) Mss. of versions. (3) Lectionaries. (4) Mss. of other works, practically all of them 'Fathers, ' which quote the New Testament. Of course, for practical purposes the student of any one of these groups often takes some standard edition of the others as a working text, and verifies it in detail only when necessary. A complete knowledge of the whole apparatus is more than any one possesses, but a fair working knowledge of the chief documents is a necessity for any critic. Greek mss.--These are divided into two classes--Uncials and Cursives. (1) Uncials.--The exact derivation of this word is unknown. But the meaning is that style of writing in which each letter is separate, and, 'roughly speaking, of a 'capital' shape, with some degree of curving. (2) Cursives.--Those written in a 'running hand' in which letters are ligatured together. The old theory about these two kinds of writing seems to have been that uncials were used in the earliest times, and that the cursive hand was adopted in the eighth or ninth century. Certain discoveries, however, show that this is not the case. The earliest division of writing, which is found long before the era of Christ, is into literary and private 'hands.' The former is at first always an uncial, the latter a cursive type. These two 'hands' must have existed s
