New Testament catena manuscripts contain both the biblical text and a form of commentary which is a compilation of extracts from the Church Fathers. The oldest and most important catena on the Pauline Epistles is the Pseudo-Oecumenian catena. The fullest previous study of this, by Karl Staab in 1926, grouped manuscripts of this catena into five types. The present study examines a wider range of manuscripts than Staab in order to reach a new understanding of the Pseudo-Oecumenian tradition. Subgroupings within the main types, and connections between exemplars and copies, are identified using palaeography and both classical and digital philology. The first-ever critical edition of a secondary type of Pseudo-Oecumenian catena on Galatians is presented, along with two previously-unknown extracts which could be part of the Scholia Photiana. Most significantly, the thesis shows that by removing two later sets of additions, the Scholia Photiana and the Corpus Extravagantium, a single original form of the catena on can be established. Supplemented with the first stage of the Corpus Extravagantium and dating from the eighth century onwards, this form also underlies the Typus Vaticanus catena, and is preserved in two surviving manuscripts (GA 075 and GA 1980).
