Overview
Three decades in the making-editors Westcott and Hort began their work in 1853 and did not publish till 1881-this critical text, correcting errors made by the original scribes, was painstakingly assembled from four different kinds of source material; Syrian, also known as Byzantine, the newest; Western, considered somewhat less reliable; Alexandrian, the most elegant; and what the editors called "Neutral," dating from the 4th century. The New Testament in the Original Greek created a sensation among scholars of the day, who considered it a supremely accurate replica of the original text of the New Testament. It is still valued by scholars today, more than a century after its first publication, and celebrated for its erudition and accomplishment. It remains a vital resource for serious students of the Bible and of ancient literature. British theologian BROOKE FOSS WESTCOTT (1825-1901) was appointed Regius Professorship of Divinity at Cambridge University in 1870, and served as Bishop of Durham from 1890 until his death. Irish theologian and editor FENTON JOHN ANTHONY HORT (1828-1892), professor of divinity at Cambridge University, founded the Journal of Classical and Sacred Philology in 1854.
