Frederick Cornwallis Conybeare is a somewhat enigmatic figure, both a bishop in the Roman Catholic Order of Corporate Reunion and a member of the Rationalist Press association of Freethinkers. He published widely on many topics, including the historical Jesus of Nazareth, setting himself against both traditionalist Christians and adherents to the Jesus-myth theory. This essay uses Acts as quoted by John Chrysostom in his commentary on that book to question and (in some cases) correct the received Western text. Conybeare uses both Greek and Armenian texts of Chrysostom, showing how the study of such “fringe” text can have large implications for the study of “core” text such as the Bible.

Theological and Social Tendencies?

Papers from the Fifth Birmingham Colloquium on the Textual Criticism of the New Testament
ISBN: 978-1-59333-789-6
Did scribes intentionally change the text of the New Testament? This book argues they did not and disputes the claims that variant readings are theologically motivated. Using evidence gathered from some of the earliest surviving biblical manuscripts these essays reconstruct the copying habits of scribes and explore the contexts in which they worked. Alongside these are studies of selected early Christian writings, which illustrate attitudes to and examples of textual change.
