Scribal Transpositions in the Biblical Text May Indicate Changes in Theology

Research output: Contribution to journalOther articlesGeneral public

Abstract

Many texts in the Bible have been preserved in manuscripts that hold different sequences for the same texts. These differences are due to the ancient scribal practice of transposing textual units during the copying of texts. Our collaborative article concludes that these transpositions were often motivated by changes in the ideology and theology of the scribes and their communities.
