Eastern Orthodoxy and biblical manuscripts

CBM is fascinated by the fact that the Eastern Orthodox theological approach, in so far as this is also reflected in biblical manuscripts, has received so little attention in western scientific studies, whilst there is an overtly clear connection between this theological approach and the manuscripts that are our object of study. Dialogue between different theological and/or scientific approaches is enriching and interesting for manuscript studies. An important additional argument to explore Eastern Orthodox theology is that today’s Eastern liturgy – with the Scriptures as its heart - is in essence the same as that from which the manuscripts stem and in which they were employed so many centuries ago.
