The text of Uncial 0323 Compared with Older and Contemporary New Testament Manuscripts

At present, unless one has the opportunity to go to St Catherine and try to decipher the Greek palimpsest leaves of the Syrus Sinaiticus (Sin. syr. 30) or to consult old pictures (provided that they are helpful, which is far from certain), the only access we have to the text of 0323, the “newest” NT uncial (dated from the 4th or 5th century), is through the portions which were transcribed by Burkitt and Mrs Dunlop.
