Westcott’s and Hort’s Greek Text

Links to the work of Westcott and Hort in creating a new Greek text that never before existed.
Given as a resource, not a recommendation.

“I pointed out that ‘the New Greek Text,’—which, in defiance of their instructions, the Revisionists of the ‘Authorized English Version’ had been so ill-advised as to spend ten years in elaborating,—was a wholly untrustworthy performance: was full of the gravest errors from beginning to end: had been constructed throughout on an entirely mistaken Theory.”

John William Burgon, in the preface to The Revision Revised: Three Articles Reprinted from the Quarterly Review (London: John Murray, 1885), xi.

[Note: the discussion of the instructions to the revisionists is found in the linked book, pages 399-413.]
