Re: Who axed Acts 8:37?

Ahh, understood, thanks.

As for the 1905 Wordsworth Vulgate, that is often a minority Latin text, based on a small number of mss.

Re: Who axed Acts 8:37?

You really have to limit the study to cases where there is a significant difference with the Byzantine Greek reading (which will genrtally be the TR reading.).

Once you take alternate spellings and nomina sacra for the same word into account, there are more identical verses than that.
As long as you define non-identical as identical, then there are many identicals.:)

Re: Who axed Acts 8:37?

Ben, they are identical on verse 24.

Ulan, Burgon’s analysis of major differences does not leverage on D, and does not include the Vulgate. You should read the section. Then you will be closer to no confusions.

"without the usual profile of the WT readings"

Disagreeing with the "weight of evidence" comment, let's continue: "Despite the weight of evidence against the reading, the witnesses that include it are a mixed collection without the usual profile of the WT readings. In summary, the dialogue between Philip and the eunuch is far from being an attem...

are the early uncials "pretty much identical" in Acts (with the Vulgate too)

The texts of Acts in the Vulgate, א, A, B, and C (Alexandrian type) are pretty much identical. Even before adding the Vulgate, this is wildly wrong. Burgon studied א, A, B, C and D and showed they differ immensely. Have you read that section? Would you like to look at one chapter of Acts? Steven

Only with a very loosey-goosey idea of “identical”.

Re: Who axed Acts 8:37?

Now I think I have the quotes right.:)

Nothing about Sinaiticus in the Hugh Houghton quote, I've never seen that claim about Sinaiticus and the Vulgate and Acts, I believe it was yours that does not hold up.

More planned to follow.

Re: Who axed Acts 8:37?

The Clementine Vulgate has Acts 8:37 but it was almost certainly not part of the original Vulgate text of Acts. While Jerome changed much of the gospels to Alexandrian and Byzantine readings, removing many Western readings in the process, he did not touch Acts, which was handled by an unknown edito...
