A New Collation of 2 Thessalonians: A Possible Starting Point for an ECM Volume

This paper will discuss the initial results of a digital collation of 140 manuscripts of 2 Thessalonians, based on new electronic transcriptions of witnesses selected according to the Text und Textwert analysis. It will examine the criteria used to select manuscripts for the project, newly discovered variants, and scribal practices observed during the project’s transcription phase. Special attention will be given to how this project might serve as a point of departure for the planned ECM volume of 2 Thessalonians.
