MARK16 is also very proud to announce the publication of a new article by Mina Monier in the OA journal Religions: Mina Monier, 2022. “Mark’s Endings in Context: Paratexts and Codicological Remarks” Religions 13, no. 6: 548. https://doi.org/10.3390/rel13060548
Summary: This article addresses the problem of the perception of Mark’s endings as expressed in its manuscript tradition. I will argue that, unlike the modern standardized image, manuscript evidence offers a complex phenomenon in which the endings were perceived in diverse ways that move across the threshold that separates a text from paratexts. Further, the manuscripts show an influence between the endings and their associated paratexts. I will show this phenomenon by examining (i) the hypotheses before the Gospel, (ii) marginalia that engaged Mark 16, and (iii) postscripts after the Gospel. In conclusion, the article recommends revisiting the standard perception of the “endings” within their larger paratextual ecosystem.
MARK16 is very proud to announce the release of a new eTalk written and produced by Mina Monier: “The Eusebian Canon Tables as a Tool of Interpretation: The Case of Mark 16”. This eTalk shows how the Eusebian canon tables were used by scribes as a tool of interpretation of Mark 16.
