Re: γεγεγεννημενον in P66 (John 3:6)

Re: Legitimate word forms?

a person must think PHONOLOGICALLY This is a point that bears repeating. It's most helpful to think of language as sound. It is only secondarily represented visually with letters. I'm a little embarrassed to say it took me so long to really realize this, after wrestling with orthography in Qumran H...

Have people here been using the Amsterdam Database of New Testament Conjectural Emendation? What is it most useful for?

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

Are there resources that provide transcriptions along with images for various periods? The link I added to my original reply has over a dozen such examples, ranging from the eighth to fifteenth century, but the resolution is not always good.

I am also interested in creating an E-Sword module from other electronic resource, if it is possible to use it freely.
