Abstract

The validity of the textcritical maxim to weigh witnesses and not to count hem, appears from the tradition of I Cor. 11:24 and Luk. 22:43-44. Large numbers of variants can be shown to have arisen from the Byzantine liturgy and therefore carry much less weight. When attention is paid to the very many ‘liturgical’ readings in minuscules and lectionaries it is clear that in many cases the champions of the so-called Majority Text, who often prefer an early Byzantine text, are forced to abandon their guiding principle of counting manuscripts.
