    Default Josephus updates and reliability

    Where are we/you/checkers at with regard to the Josephus files? Can a percentage be given of the extent to which the material in those files can be trusted? Are they 50% checked? 75%?

    Thanks,

    Roy Ciampa

    Default Josephus Files

    Hi Dr. Ciampa,

    It's hard to say because as they read through the material they do a lot of global changes and changes of all occurrences of a word. But I believe that Aletti is almost finished with the Antiquities, which is really the bulk of the work. Gieniusz is working on other parts. They did indicate that they thought they would be finished by the Fall, which is not far away. If I had to put a number on the work I would say 95%, but as you can imagine the last 5% is the hardest. I know that all the hapaxes have slowed them a bit. But it is competent work.

    Default Thanks!

    Thanks Mike,

    That's pretty about what I expected, but it's good to hear it from you!

    God bless,

    Roy
