[The H. Milton Haggard Center for NT Textual Studies in New Orleans at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is pleased to announce the release of our NT Greek Manuscripts app for iPhones and iPads.

The app, which is free, allows for searching of NT Greek MSS by manuscript number, date, and location (cities, with the libraries located in each city then listed so that the exact library can be chosen).  The page for each MS includes some of the typical info like content, date, and such, an abbreviation of what is found in the Kurzgefasste Liste and based on the MS lists in the CNTTS Critical Apparatus.

For those MS with images available online, there is a link that opens the browser to go to the webpage with the images.  Thanks are expressed to the INTF for allowing linking to their VMR site.  Also, the images posted by the CSNTM are linked, so thanks go to them as well and to many others that have posted images of NT Greek MSS.

Here are some images of the app screens, with the first screen showing a search based on the MS number, the second a search by date (clicking on the century shows all of the MSS listed for that century), and the third a search by location.

To download the app, simply type NT Greek MSS into the App store search box.  While many at the CNTTS worked on various aspects of the app, special credit goes to Steve Whatley and Bob Littlefield for the primary roles in creating the app itself.  Hopefully this will be helpful to students, pastors, faculty, and researchers alike.]
