Transcribing the Crawford Codex is an ongoing project here at As the project progresses more content will be added to this page. Our first goal is to have the Crawford Codex version of the Western Five (II Peter, II John, III John, Jude and Revelation) ready for download. These five books are not to be found in the Khabouris Codex. The version now available of the Western Five is tentatively called the Harklean Version. The Crawford Codex may very well be the longlost Philoxinian recension, however this theory is still greatly debated.
