Makhova M.V. On the Marginal Glosses in the New Testament of the Moscow Bible of 1663 and Their Sources
The article discusses the marginal glossaries of the New Testament as part of the Moscow Bible in 1663. Comparing the MB glosses with the readings of the main text of the MB and the Ostrog Bible, the Gennadiy Bible, the Talks of John Chrysostom, the Epiphanius Slavinetsky’s New Testament, readings of previous editions, Greek and Latin texts, the author tries to identify the possible sources used in the work on the MB, to identify the continuity of grammatical thought, which was reflected in the right of the Moscow scribes and the result of this right – the 1663 Moscow Bible. In the main text, the editor focuses more on traditional readings that coincide with the readings of the Ostrog Bible and the Gennady Bible. And in the marginals gives his version of the translation. A comparison of the glossary with other editors shows that during working on the MB, the editor used various sources. Subsequently, these glossaries will be transferred by Epiphanius Slavinetsky to the main text of his New Testament.
