  • Novum testamentum Graece 3 Volume Set in 4 Paperback Pieces. Cambridge University Press, 2013. 3518p. 4 Paperback books. Series: Cambridge Library Collection - Biblical Studies. The German biblical scholar Constantin von Tischendorf (1815–74) published his monumental eighth edition of the Greek New Testament between 1869 and 1872. Following his death, the prolegomena was compiled by colleagues and appeared between 1884 and 1894. Influenced by the pioneering scholarship of Karl Lachmann (1793–1851), who had first moved away from relying on the Textus Receptus, Tischendorf placed key emphasis on the witness of older uncial manuscripts, most notably the Codex Sinaiticus (which he rediscovered) and the Codex Vaticanus. His painstaking work laid the foundations for the creation of modern critical texts, and the vast amount of manuscript evidence he collated has ensured that this edition remains a standard work of reference for biblical scholars and textual critics. Volumes 1 and 2 contain the text and critical apparatus. Volume 3, containing the Latin prolegomena, is presented in two separate parts for this reissue.
