Athanasius's Contribution to the Alexandrian Textual Tradition of the Pauline Epistles: An Initial Exploration

Gerald John Donker

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Athanasius frequently quotes the Pauline epistles in his writings. The author examines and classifies Athanasius's references to these works as citations, adaptations, or allusions. He then considers whether it is likely that Athanasius was quoting from memory or copying a written text. Finally, he discusses the agreement of Athanasius's text with Primary and Secondary Alexandrian witnesses, as well as with the Byzantine text-type.
