The Goths have had an immense impact on world history, having changed the face of Europe by bringing down the Roman Empire in the fifth century, only a century after the Gothic bishop Ulfilas converted most of the Gothic kingdom to Christianity. Ulfilas (also known as Wulfila) invented the Gothic alphabet through which he translated the Bible into the Gothic language, of which many surviving New Testament fragments remain. The Wulfila Bible, despite being fragmentary, is the only extensive document that survives in this ancient Eastern Germanic language, making it of particular interest to linguists and scholars of New Testament textual criticism.
The Gothic language also provides a key glimpse at the ancient Indo-European language family, due especially to its widespread use throughout ancient Europe—from Portugal to Bulgaria and from Sweden to Northern Africa. Its wide reach, lack of modern descendants, and early fourth-century texts make it of considerable interest in comparative linguistics. Studies on Gothic Christian Writings provides three essential volumes on the Gothic language and the Gothic translation of the Gospel of Mark.
Expand your study of Gospel fragments into Gothic through Logos. Analyze these ancient manuscripts alongside the accompanying grammars and introductions, and explore the variations between other pre-medieval Gospel manuscripts. Logos makes linguistic studies a breeze.
