Canonizing Paul

Ancient Editorial Practice and the Corpus Paulinum

Eric W. Scherbenske

  • Sustained investigation of ancillary materials, i.e. paratexts, appended to ancient manuscripts of Paul's letters as an integral facet of ancient editorial practice.
  • Investigates the ways in which editors shaped editions of Paul's letters in light of their hermeneutical or catechetical concerns.
  • Situates editorial practices utilized on Paul's letters against the backdrop of ancient editorial practice.
