CNTTS Lacunae meaning

Recommended Posts

To anyone who is familiar with the CNTTS, I am having some confusion concerning the meaning of "Lacunae." I know that Lacunae means that "the manuscript is not extant for this reading or passage," but I am unsure how it differs from OM (Omit, the base reading is omitted).

 

Thank you for any help anyone can provide.

 

Sincerely,

Kristin

Lacunae means that the manuscript has a literal hole at that reading. Omit means that the manuscript isn’t damaged; it just doesn’t have the given word.

That's a helpful distinction, Brian. So helpful in fact, I added as a note to my copy of the CNTTS.
