14 May 2020: IGNTP online seminar: Claire Clivaz: “Mark 16 and the codex k (Bobiensis): what are the mistakes at stake?”. The Latin codex k represents a very interesting case in the history of NT research: well known since scholarly memory began, it has never been really considered in the complex file of Mark 16 evidence, since it has mostly been considered as presenting mistakes or odd variants in Mark 16. Based on the latest editions of this codex and on images of the manuscript, this paper will present different reading options for this specific version of the last chapter of Mark, including what we should call a “k shorter ending”.
