A lucid delimitation of textual units appears to have been a serious concern of ancient scribes. In this fifth volume of the Pericope series, this is demonstrated in the papers read at the Fourth Pericope Meeting held in connection with the SBL International Meeting at Cambridge, 2003.For the first time articles on text division in New Testament manuscripts are included: one on the pericope markers in some relatively early manuscripts, especially papyri, as well as in the four major codices, and another article on Codex Boernerianus and papyrus 46 of the letters of Paul.Other topics discussed are the setumot and petuchot in Numbers and Amos, and the special phrases preceding or following them. Is it possible to get more insight on the way the ancient scribes put in the spaces and blank lines in their manuscripts? Furthermore, the divisions made by Jerome on his commentary on the Book of Isaiah are investigated, and the question about the frame story of the Book of Job--is it prose or poetry?The Pericope series aims at making available data on unit delimitation found in biblical and related manuscripts to the scholarly world and provides a platform for evaluating this hitherto largely neglected evidence for the benefit of biblical interpretation.ContentsM.
