Just purchased the Codex add-on and am loving reading the earliest Greek texts of the NT.

 

Is there a way to view the correctors in this module?  The Read-Me of Codex Sinaiticus states:

 

"Conventions in the digital version

 1. Text Decisions: As in Tischendorf, the attempt is to replicate the original scribe rather than a subsequent corrector, whose work is also evident in the text."

 

Where is the corrector's work evident in the text module? Does this just apply to the print version/images of the MSS?

Yes. The phrase "whose work is also evident in the text" refers to the correctors of the text of Codex Sinaiticus itself. The Accordance module is based on the transcription of the manuscript prepared by Tischendorf in the mid-nineteenth century, which did not include readings that were judged to be secondary.

However, images of the actual manuscript, and a transcription that highlights corrections, are available on the British Library's Codex Sinaiticus website: http://codexsinaiticus.org/en/.

There is no indication in the text where this type of decision was made. So it isn't possible to view the correctors' text. My recommendation would be to use this in combination with a textual apparatus that will indicate significant places where the correctors differ.
