Still more on that catalogue of Syriac manuscripts

LIV INGEBORG LIED: Transmission, textual units, "codex context."
This post offers some methodological and theoretical reflections on the transmission of textual units, the transformation of texts, and some interesting challenges for those of us who work on "the codex context" - inspired by Brock and van Rompay's new catalogue.
This is my final post on the catalogue of Syriac manuscripts in the Dayr al-Suryan. Promise.

We'll forgive you if you change your mind, Liv.

More from Professor Lied on that catalogue of Syriac manuscripts from the Monastery at Deir al-Surian is noted here and links. Her current post also has more on the title of Josephus' Antiquities book 6 (a.k.a. "5 Maccabees") in Codex Ambrosius B.21.
