Five more texts have been published this week in preliminary editions. These provide one text-type in Greek without textual variants. Of these, only the text of Theodotus has been proofread so far. The new texts include:

The Apocryphon of Ezekiel
3 (Greek Apocalypse of) Baruch
Philo the Epic Poet
Testament of Solomon

Upgrades to the Grammateus user interface

An upgraded user interface has recently been posted on the OCP site. The interface now allows users to select specific chapter/verse ranges for viewing. Users can also now produce a printer-friendly version of text displayed in the main reading window. Where texts have a critical apparatus, users now click on the main-text to view variants (instead of simply mousing over the text). This last change will help the interface to be more stable in general and will also allow users to retain variants in the apparatus window while they perform mouse operations elsewhere on the screen.

Texts Updated

After a brief hiatus, work on the Online Critical Pseudepigrapha continues. Three texts have now been fully proofread and may be treated as reliable: Testament of Abraham (recensions A and B), Aristeas the Exegete, and Aristobulus. In addition, the text of Aristobulus has been expanded to include all of the fragments included in Holladay's edition but absent in the earlier edition of Denis. Look for updated versions of more texts soon.
