Editio Critica Maior
The Editio Critica Maior documents the Greek textual history of the first millennium based on Greek manuscripts of special relevance for the textual tradition, on older translations and on quotations of the New Testament in ancient Christian literature. Based on genealogical studies of the material prepared for the first time with this completeness the text is being newly reconstructed.The selection of manuscripts rests on an analysis of the entire primary tradition. The ECM is one of the research projects accepted by the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences and Arts as part of their programme. It was established as "Arbeitsstelle Novum Testamentum Graecum - Editio Critica Maior" at Münster University in 2008.
