The Text of Matthew in the Writings of Basil of Caesarea explores from a text-critical point of view the text of the First Gospel used by Basil, a prolific and influential fourth-century Christian writer who abundantly quoted the Bible. The book lists all quotations and significant allusions made to the First Gospel and compares these to twenty-one ancient Greek and Latin manuscripts to determine and assess the textual affinities of Basil's text of Matthew. The book discusses the development of the Byzantine text type and argues that Basil's text of Matthew represents its earliest known witness.
