Re: Multiplicity of Scribal Hands


A well known medieval practice was to have people who wished
entrance to a religious community to copy texts as part of entrance
requirements... since the medievals were careful to emulate what they
considered "ancient" practices,  might this also be one of the reasons for
the multiplicity of hands in the DSS?

Just a thought,
