Manuscript Clusters


The tools accessible on this site utilize data from publications of the Münster Institute for New Testament Textual Research.

“T&T Mss. Clusters” is based on
Text und Textwert der griechischen Handschriften des Neuen Testaments, ed. K. Aland et al. Vol. IV Die Synoptischen Evangelien, 1 Das Markusevangelium; 2 Das Matthäusevangelium; 3 Das Lukasevangelium (Berlin/New York: De Gruyter, 1998-1999). Vol. V Das Johannesevangelium, 1 Teststellenkollation der Kapitel 1-10 (Berlin/New York: De Gruyter, 2005).

“Parallel Pericopes: Mss. Clusters” and “Parallel Pericopes: Find Relatives” are based on Novum Testamentum Graecum – Editio Critica Maior: Parallel Pericopes (Special Volume Regarding the Synoptic Gospels), ed. H. Strutwolf and K. Wachtel (Stuttgart: Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft 2011).

The two clustering tools may be used to compare groupings found through “Text und Textwert” with ones based on the full collations for “Parallel Pericopes”.

“Find Relatives” applies the “Parallel Pericopes” groupings to attestations of variant passages. It is designed to show an important aspect of the Coherence-Based Genealogical Method (CBGM): pre-genealogical coherence in attestations.

All three tools are explained by comprehensive guides accessible from their individual interfaces.
