The gospels-text of Athanasius.
MetadataShow full item record
The subject of this Dissertation belongs to the general field of the Patristic studies; specifically, it is connected with the contribution of the Patristic quotations to the Textual Criticism of the New Testament. The main purpose of this study focuses on the investigation of the text of the four Gospels as used by Athanasius. Textual critics of the New Testament, in the past one hundred years, have merely said that Athanasius used the so-called "Neutral Text", but the evidence for such a statement has not yet been given. It is therefore important for us to discover whether this Father actually used the "Neutral Text" or any other type of text. [TRUNCATED]
