Not until shortly before the invention of printing from movable type was parchment displaced by paper in the Western world. Since classical scholars assume the general reliability of these secular works even where the time interval is great and where only a few MSS are available, it is clear that with far greater assurance the student of the NT may assume that the presently-available NT text reliably represents what the authors originally wrote.
OL MSS are cited by single lower-case letters plus abbreviations such as aur, ff2, gig, and ph.
