About the Author

H. A. G. Houghton is Professor of New Testament Textual Scholarship at the University of Birmingham, where he is also Director of the Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing. He is one of the editors of the Gospel according to John and corresponding editor for the principal Pauline Epistles in the Vetus Latina series.


The work is an astounding achievement for its breadth, concision, and wealth of material introduced. In light of the authors obvious care for the subject, readers may well expect to follow his exemplary scholarship for many years to come. * Joseph Grabau, Augustiniana 67:3.4 *
This book is a masterpiece, and it will be admired as such for many decades to come. * Paul Foster, Expository Times *
This book not only updates earlier guides to the Latin New Testament, but it also appears to be the only monograph in the past century to treat the entire history of that tradition-and the only one ever to appear in English. * John C. Poirier, RBL *
Houghton's work is filled with fascinating and entertaining facts. ... [He] must be commended for such a helpful guide to the Latin New Testament. ... Readers will benefit greatly from Houghton's painstaking efforts to organize and catalogue an overarching picture of the text that served the western church for centuries. * Jeff Cate, Fides et Humilitas: The Journal of the Center for Ancient Christian Studies *
The work is an astounding achievement for its breadth, concision, and wealth of material introduced. In light of the author's obvious care for the subject, readers may well expect to follow his exemplary scholarship for many years to come. * Joseph Grabau, Augustiniana *
This book is likely to prove an invaluable aid to anyone wishing to study the text and tradition of the Latin NT. * Ruth B. Edwards, Journal for the Study of the New Testament *
a rich resource that serves a number of different audiences. ... Houghton has produced a thorough, near-complete, and insightful introduction to the early history of the Latin New Testament and its scholarly study. Textual scholars will find a comprehensive overview and access to further material; historians will find a technically responsible, yet accessible, history of transmission. * Dirk Jongkind, Association for Manuscripts and Archives in Research Collections *
Houghton has succeeded in writing a book that prepares and equips students and scholars to study the Latin New Testament. Readers who have a familiarity with the textual criticism and Latin will find the book to be accessible and easy to understand, but even those with no knowledge in these areas will benefit from reading this book. Thus, Houghton has made a significant contribution to the field of textual criticism, and his book should be used by anyone seeking an introduction or guide to the Latin New Testament. * Benjamin Browning, The Journal for Baptist Theology and Ministry *
The book's orientation of the reader in not only the manuscripts but also the scholarship is an enormous service: most scholars will probably find something they were unaware of that will answer a lingering question in their minds ... This is the most useful kind of scholarship: readable, informative, and engaging. It summarizes a vast swathe of literature and makes it accessible to others, overturning widely held misconceptions, and showing how we can get far more information out of the Latin New Testament and its manuscripts. This book is required reading for anyone studying the New Testament, patristic and medieval literature, or biblical manuscripts. It is deserving of a home in any humanities library. * Andrew Dunning, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
Houghton has produced a magisterial piece of scholarship and has done so in a way that is sure to benefit scholars and students alike. He has given a wide audience a clear introduction to the history and significance of the Latin New Testament as well as an invaluable reference text for the manuscripts of the LNT. As an introduction, the book is clear and concise; as a reference work, it is easy to navigate and decipher. Houghton has, without a doubt, produced a standard work for the present period of textual criticism which is taking place with renewed vigor. * Stephen D. Campbell, Centre for Research of Biblical Manuscripts *
The book is attractively produced, with photographs of some of the most interesting manuscripts ... [it] looks likely to be a standard resource for some time. * Colin McDonald, Classics for All *
[I] would like to emphasise the competence of the author who succeeds in marrying synthetic views and precision. This guide will be of great value to scholars in patristic and biblical studies. * Pierre-Maurice Bogaert, Journal of Ecclesiastical History *
