The Gospel History and Its Transmission


T&T Clark 1911

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Francis Crawford Burkitt believed that the canonical Gospels were an extraordinary historical resource for understanding the first 150 years of Christianity—as the character and belief of the early church was formed—but have been diminished by modern historical criticism. In 1906, Burkitt offered 10 lectures explaining their importance in this regard, and demonstrating how the traditionally Catholic view of history reflected the actual course of events more accurately.

About F. Crawford Burkitt

Francis Crawford Burkitt (1864–1935) was Norris Professor of Divinity at the University of Cambridge from 1905 to 1934. His academic focus was on the reception of the New Testament and textual criticism. He is known both for the critical stance he took on the notion of the Caesarean text type proposed by B.H. Streeter and also for his standard edition of Curetonianus, one of two known existing Old Syriac New Testament manuscripts.
