Codex Bezae is one of the most important primary sources in New Testament scholarship. Together with Codex Alexandrinus and Codex Vaticanus it represents one of our most significant links back to the early Church and its origins. Since its rediscovery in the sixteenth century, the riddles posed by its general appearance and its textual characteristics have continued to fascinate scholars, and David Parker here offers a comprehensive study of Codex Bezae. This book aims to cast light on the story behind this most enigmatic of manuscripts. Data are presented here that makes possible a reconstruction of the stages of copying from which the manuscript descends. An appraisal of the earliest correctors of the Codex enables the author to extend his picture of its history to the medieval period.

Review of the hardback: '... clear and valuable study.' The Times Literary Study
"This extraordinarily well-researched book treats an important subject in a fundamentally important fashion, providing a thorough examination of the manuscript as manuscript. The meticulous detail fits together into a unified whole, to comprise an argument that has its compelling aspects, its highly probable aspects, and--at the very least--its plausible aspects. I recommend this work most highly." Professor Eldon J. Epp
"This book presents mature, scholarly judgments, expressed with clarity and balance. It is comprehensive in scope and will remain a classic of its kind." The Princeton Seminary Bulletin
"Comprehensive, meticulous, and massively documented, this is the first full analysis of Codex Bezae in over a century, and it is the first definitive study ever....This is a model study, essential reading for all textual critics and an important purchase for all research libraries." Religious Studies Review
"Parker's book deserves wide attention. To have illuminated not only a codex and its history but perhaps also something of its theological and social context, is an impressive achievement." Michael W. Holmes, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
