It is no sound palaeography to be too creative and innovative at the cost of the verifiable, linguistic basis

I had no idea of industry and diligence till I saw Bekker’s collations. There is scarcely an author in Greek who he has not collated with MSS

The Bodley is now so cold that I cannot sit there the requisite time for due collation

Grammar is a commentary of the text, from a linguistic point of view

no amount either of grammar or of palaeography will teach a man one scrap of textual criticism

The palaeographical criterion is looked up to as an ideal by many whose understanding of palaeography is minimal

it is common knowledge that scribes often multiply exclamations

My interest in the Pontifical is purely palaeographical
