Character description

Kurt Aland (1915-1994): German New Testament Textual Critic (that is, one who studies the manuscripts of the Greek New Testament, trying to determine the original reading). His contributions to the field have been immense, beginning with his role in updating the famous Nestle edition of the New Testament. He also served on the committee that edited the United Bible Societies' text (an edition that has all but eliminated the competition) and for many years kept the catalog of Greek New Testament manuscripts. He founded the Munster Institute for New Testament Textual studies. These and other contributions surely qualify him as the most fruitful worker on the New Testament text in the second half of the twentieth century. Whether his contributions to textual theory are of the same quality as his data collection is a more difficult question.
