Eusebian Canon Tables with Citations

I present two other pages, one providing the Eusebian Canon Tables with the Ammonian section numbers as given in the tables (here), and the other resolving those Ammonian section numbers into modern chapter and verse citations (here). A reader might find it tedious to do the work to line up everything, so I have done that work here by arranging the citations in the Eusebian Canon Table format.

I have also compiled a complete index of all of the citations found in the Eusebian canon tables (here). It is complete, meaning that all of the parallels are provided in order, not simply in the order presented in the tables, which privelege one or another Gospel as the chief reference per table.

Recent reading (namely a very enlightening article by Carl Nordenfalk, “The Eusebian Canon-Tables: Some Textual Problems,” Journal of Theological Studies 35 [1984], 96-104), has made me aware that the presentation of the Eusebian apparatus in the Nestle-Aland editions of the Novum Testamentum Graecae, from which I have compiled the below and the related pages on the Greek Eusebian apparatus, are, in fact, a later revision of the original Eusebian system. A critical edition of the Greek Eusebian apparatus is underway by Martin Wallraff, University of Basel, which will be very helpful. The original Eusebian system is in Nordenfalk’s estimation best represented by the Weber Vulgate editions (which are critical in that they are based on the best Latin witnesses (supported by Coptic, Ethiopian, and Armenian witnesses) which I will also present. The Nestle-Aland version is based upon the first printed Greek texts without reference to manuscripts, which is a surprising fact and a disappointing shortcoming in those editions, which was also Nestle’s estimation. The system present in the Nestle-Aland editions is not vastly different from the original, but there are certainly several differences. So, take the below presentation as what it is, an expansion of the system as presented in the modern primary critical text of the New Testament, rather than as representative of the original Eusebian apparatus itself.

Readers may also be interested in a refinement of the Eusebian apparatus which was an integral part of the Syriac Peshitta Gospels. I present that apparatus, along with a full index, here .

(The first two tables are necessarily very wide, and scroll sideways.)
