>"For the Book of Revelation he had but one manuscript, dating from the
>twelfth century, which he had borrowed from his friend Reuchlin.
Has that manuscript been identified? I would love to know which MS it is.
It is cursive 1 (of Revelation, not Gospels, Acts, and Paul),
which is now renumbered as 2814. It is the text of Revelation with a
commentary on it by Andreas, bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia. (The
commentary text somtimes mucks up the text of the Apocalypse, forcing
Erasmus to back-translate words here and there, in addition to 22:16-21
which were missing (being the last leaf, frequently falling off books
even in these modern times).
My memory tells me Tregelles collated it soon after it was located by
Delitzsch--must have been in the 1870's.
