Listwatch @ Textualcriticism

A couple of items of interest that have been awaiting a spare moment for a mention in the blog, both from Wieland Willker's Textual Criticism e-list:

Free Fonts by Gary S. Dykes

I have not tried these myself, but there are a variety of new and updated fonts here, Aramaic, Coptic, Syriac, Ugaritic.

And Wieland praises the new Münster website:

New Testament Transcripts Prototype
It features now the text of e.g. P45, P66, P75, 01, 02 and 03 of the Gospels, complete! You can use a "page view", where you can see e.g. the three columns of one page of B. The umlauts in B are given. Especially helpful is the "Compare" function. You can compare two MSS with each other, verse by verse, and the differences are highlighted!
