Re: Photius' Library, 17th cent. Type Script

After spending a lot of the past year on looking at medieval manuscripts, the light bulb moment for me was think more about the inputs--how the pen moves across the parchment--instead of the output, as in the final shape of the letters.

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

But suppose we go the other route and create a text. What would it take to get street cred so that it can be used in academic publications and translations? The big problem is network effects. There is a lot of value in everyone working from the same text, and academics have settled on Nestle-Aland...

From earlier discussion, I think they actually want to make it open, but found this difficult.
Do you why?

Is μὲν οὖν a constituent?
You'll sometimes see the spelling μενοῦν, which suggests that it can be. There's even one in Luke 11:28.

We have discussed that. One problem is that most of the resources we would like to use with it were created with a modern critical text, which is also what most people read.
This sounds like a generic argument against any but the Nestle-Aland text, which is not open.

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

On the substance of the proposal, what about an edited transcription of an ancient text like Vaticanus (B)? (I think Porter has suggested a similar solution). It would be open, as in long out-of-copyright. And it is a trusted text of the 4th century. Sure, historical critics might not be as enthused...
