241 V I . T H E AMMONIAN

by S. R. Driver
241 V I . T H E AMMONIAN SECTIONS, E U S E B I AN CANONS, A N D H A R M O N I Z I N G T A B L E S IN T H E SYRIAC T E T R A E V A N G E L I U M, WITH NOTICES OF PESHITTO AND OTHER MSS. WHICH EXHIBIT THESE ACCESSORIES OF THE TEXT. [ G. H . GWILLIAM.] IT is proposed in the following paper to give an account of the form in which the ( so- called) Ammonian Sections and the Eusebian Canons are exhibited in MSS. of the Peshitto Version of the Four Gospels. The Greek form of this system of division and reference is well known, the symbols being expressed along the margin of the Greek text in such com-mon editions as those of M i l l , of Lloyd, and of Tischendorf; but the Syriac form has never been printed in any edition of the Syriac text. It was known from J. G. C. Adlers Versiones Syriacae that Peshitto and Philoxenian ( or rather Charelean) MSS. frequently exhibit these divisions, and have tables of Canons prefixed, while some of the facsimiles ap-pended to his book show a marginal notation of Section and Canon, like that found in Greek codices. So it has, perhaps, been assumed that the two systems, which are constructed on the same principle, differ only in unimportant details: certainly but little attention has been paid to the Syriac form,  although it derives its origin from a very remote period1. The editio princeps of the Peshitto ( Widmanstadt, Vienna, 1 The late Dean Burgon claimed to have been the first to direct the atten-tion of Biblical scholars in general to the Syriac Ammonian Sections and Eusebian Canons. He has given a brief but clear account of them in hi3 Last Twelve Verses of St. M a r k , App. G. The late P. E. Pusey set them out on the margins of his Widmanstadt from the MSS. which he had collated for his projected revision of the text. They will be printed in the edition  of the Peshitto Gospels, now in preparation at the Clarendon Press. VOL. II. R Chapter Home  | TOC t
