TREGELLES, S. P.,
The Greek New Testament 7 Volumes in 5 Paperback Pieces: Volume 0, Part 0.
Cambridge University Press, 2010. 1181p. 5 Paperback books. Series: Cambridge Library Collection - Biblical Studies. Samuel Prideaux Tregelles (1813–1875) was a Cornish-born Biblical scholar who travelled to major libraries all over Europe in order to study ancient manuscripts. Biblical textual criticism was a burgeoning new field in the mid-nineteenth century, with leading scholars including Lachmann and Tischendorf in Germany and Tregelles' contemporaries Scrivener, Westcott and Hort in England all working towards the ideal of a more authoritative Greek New Testament text than had previously been available. In Tregelles' landmark edition, published between 1857 and 1879, each page of Greek text is accompanied by Jerome's Latin Vulgate text, indications of manuscripts used, Biblical cross-references, and a full textual apparatus. Tregelles also provides introductory notes on the manuscripts consulted and on his editorial principles. In this reissued set, the original short volumes 5, 6 and 7 are bound together in one volume.
