Biography

 Frederick Henry Ambrose Scrivener
Source: Wikipedia
Born at Southwark, Scrivener was educated at Falmouth School and Trinity College, Cambridge. He later became the headmaster of Falmouth (1846-1856) and prebendary of Exeter (1874-1891). Scrivener spent his entire career working on New Testament manuscripts. He published the texts of twenty manuscripts (including Codex Augiensis and the miniscule 81), produced a list of all extant manuscripts, and created a system for classifying manuscripts. As an enthusiastic supporter of the Textus Receptus, he opposed the text produced by Westcott and Hort but did not gain a following among biblical scholars. He is well known for his book, A Plain Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament (1894).

In Plain Introduction to the Criticism of the New Testament, Scrivener studies over 3,000 manuscripts of the New Testament. Many of the accounts in this volume have been written or compiled by leading scholars in the fields of Greek and Latin classics or biblical studies. This first volume contains Scrivener's preliminary considerations where he explains the importance of textual criticism and introduces the reader to the types of manuscripts contained in the volume. Then Scrivener presents the general character of the Greek manuscripts, exploring the various writing materials, styles, and literary conventions associated with individual manuscripts. The majority of this volume is filled with the uncial manuscripts of the Book of Acts, the Gospels, and Paul's epistles. These uncial manuscripts are written in the Greek or Latin script of the early centuries. The wealth of manuscripts contained in this book is unrivaled. As a result of completing a project of this latitude, Scrivener will be remembered for decades.
