Categories of New Testament manuscripts

New Testament manuscripts in Greek are categorized into five groups, according to a scheme introduced in 1981 by Kurt and Barbara Aland in The text of the New Testament. The categories are based on. Speaking, earlier Alexandrian manuscripts are category I, while Byzantine manuscripts are category V. Aland's method involved considering 1000 passages where the Byzantine text differs from non-Byzantine text; the Alands did not select their 1000 readings from all of the NT books. This category includes the earliest manuscripts; some fourth century and earlier papyri and uncials are in this category, as are manuscripts of the Alexandrian text-type. The manuscripts in this category are important when considering textual problems and are considered by many scholars to be a good representation of the autograph, due to their early dating; the manuscripts in this category are similar to category I manuscripts, are important in textual consideration of the autograph. However, the texts contain some alien influences, such as those found in the Byzantine text-type.

Egyptian texts fall in this category. The manuscripts in category III are important when discussing the history of the textual traditions and to a lesser degree for establishing the original text; the manuscripts contain independent readings, have a distinctive character. F1, f13 are examples of manuscript families. Manuscripts of this category present mixed or eclectic text-type. Category IV contains the few manuscripts; these texts are of the Western text-type. Byzantine and Byzantine texts fall under this category. Caesarean text-type is the term proposed by certain scholars to denote a consistent pattern of variant readings of the four Gospels. See Aland:159–162; this system of classification prefers the Alexandrian text-type. Manuscripts that represent the Western text-type are classified as Category IV in Gospels, Category II/III in the Pauline Letters; this is significant because some scholars believe that some or all of the Minuscule text or the Western texts are closer to the original texts.

Some manuscripts are not classified. Uncial 055 is not because it is a commentary, according to some specialists, written in a minuscule hand. P 7, P 89, P 121, Uncial 080, Uncial 0100, Uncial 0118, 0174, 0230, 0263, 0264, 0267, 0268 are too brief to classify. Uncial 0144 and 0196 are not accessible. P 25 is not classified because of the Diatessaric character of text. P 5 was classified to Category I. According to Comfort it is "a good example of what Kurt and Barbara Aland call "normal".

However, Rahul disappears at the train station, Jenny returns to Prem so Prem can help her find Rahul.

Tate Adams

Tate Adams was an Australian artist, based in Townsville, named a Member of the Order of Australia in 2009 for service to publishing and to the arts through contributions to the development of printmaking in Australia. In 2010 he was made the Inaugural Honorary Fellow of the Print Council of Australia. Tate Adams was born William Allen Adams in Holywood, Northern Ireland in 1922, his first exhibition was in northern Ireland, a joint show with Gerard Dillon organised by the Council for the Encouragement of Music and Arts. In 1949 and 1950 he took night classes at the Central School of Art in London under the British printmaker, Gertrude Hermes. In 1952 he moved to Melbourne, visiting Ireland in 1959 to spend a year working voluntarily with Liam Miller of Dolmen Press. Dolmen published his first book of engravings, Soul Cages, on returning to Melbourne he completed linocuts to illustrate the Dolmen press reprint of Riders to the Sea. Tate Adams established the artist print department at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1960 and taught there for 22 years until 1982.

He was responsible for introducing professionalism into printmaking, improving the technical standard of printmaking as an art form, championing printmaking throughout Australia. His students included George Baldessin, Jock Clutterbuck, Elizabeth Cross, Tay Kok Wee and Graeme Peebles, he encouraged artists to use the facilities and developed printmaking as a respected art form amongst artists such as Fred Williams, John Brack, John Olsen and Len French. To further promote printmaking as an art form, Adams established Crossley Gallery in 1966, the only commercial gallery in Australia devoted to printmaking; the gallery operated in Melbourne until 1980. A publication on the operation of the gallery, The Crossley Gallery 1966–1980 was published by Macmillan Publishers in 2003. Contributors to the book included Harry Crock, AO, Patrick McCaughey, Professor Jenny Zimmer, Alison Broinowski. Crossley was significant in that it introduced the work of Japanese printmakers to Australia, introducing a new aesthetic to Australian artists.

Together with George Baldessin, Adams established the Crossley Print Workshop in 1973 where printmakers could produce and edition work for Crossley Gallery. Roger Kemp and John Olsen are examples. Following the closure of the Crossley Print Workshop in 1977, Adams and Baldessin established Lyre Bird Press to publish high-calibre livres d'artistes. Baldessin died in a car accident in 1978 while working on his first book for the Press, his Mary Magdalene drawings. Adams operated the press, continuing to produce artist books, including Diary of a Vintage in 1981, the award-winning John Brack Nudes in 1982, Seven Deadly Sins by Juli Haas in 1998, the Palmetum in 2002. Adams moved to Townsville, Queensland in 1989 and in 1992 moved the press's operations to the College of Music, Visual Arts and Theatre at James Cook University where he became an honorary lecturer; the Press, never a commercially successful enterprise, is sustained by Adams's own funds and enthusiasm, continues to promote the work of a spectrum of printmakers.

Lyre Bird Press continues to publish books in collaboration with Jenny Zimmer of Zimmer Editions. A major touring exhibition of Lyre Bird Press – In Full Flight, organised by Perc Tucker Regional Gallery, Townsville's public gallery, toured the east coast of Australia from 2001. Tate Adams continued his own artistic practice and exhibited in his years at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery: a major solo exhibition, Gesture, in 2002, followed by The Line in 2007 included curated work by Adams as well as a major gouache. Adams died on 8 April 2018, aged 96

Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches

The Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches is an Anglican Christian communion, formed in 1995 as a result of the Convergence Movement. The CEEC converges the evangelical, charismatic and sacramental traditions of the Christian faith; as of 2014, the CEEC International College of Archbishops numbers 9, together with 56 bishops representing provincial families around the world. For example, the Communion website shows a Province of India and a Province of the UK and Eastern Europe. On May 31, 2014 the Communion established the Apostolate of Saint Francis for the Mediterranean and Middle East; as of 26 April 2012, CEEC permits its member bishops to ordain women as deacons, but not as priests and bishops. In early 1994 members of a charismatic renewal parish in the Episcopal Church USA, together with their rector, began to conceptualize a vision of a new communion of churches that would be tied to the historic Anglican spiritual tradition, while experiencing "convergence" of the streams of the Church.

Archbishop John Kivuva was connected with and agreed to serve as transitional Presiding Bishop for the new body, tentatively called the Evangelical Episcopal Church. In October 1995 in Dale City, Virginia 300 people gathered, representing a wide variety of denominational backgrounds and 25 independent congregations who had come into relationship with the new group. Bishop Michael Owen, Archdeacon Beth Owen, Rt. Rev. Peter Riola, other bishops in apostolic succession from Eastern Orthodox and Old Catholic jurisdictions were present to help in the consecrating of their first two bishops and the ordination of 25 pastors and 7 deacons; the first two bishops consecrated included Vincent McCall Russell McClanahan archbishop of the CEEC Province of St. Peter. Five congregations affiliated with the new communion. In January 1997 the 6 bishops meeting in synod voted to reconstitute and reincorporate the Evangelical Episcopal Church as "The Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches" to reflect the international growth and the needs for eventual provincial structuring.

Six nations were now represented in affiliation. In 1997 the Rev. Duraisingh James, a priest and church planter with the Church of South India for 17 years at that time and long-time head of Christian Education for the Church Union of South India, traveled to meet with the USA founding House of Bishops and indicated his desire to affiliate with the CEEC, together with the 30 churches under his oversight. Shortly thereafter, Fr. Duraisingh was consecrated as Missionary Bishop for India, as Archbishop for the CEEC Province of India. Since 1999, two new bishops have been consecrated/received into the Province of India with three dioceses numbering over 75 congregations, along with a seminary founded by Archbishop James. In 2005 the CEEC USA province joined with the International Communion of Christian Churches to form the Communion of Convergence Churches, USA. In 2006 this relationship was strengthened as the international CEEC organization entered into "co-communion" with the CCCUSA, now known as Christian Communion International.
