Summary/Abstract: The article discusses the Slavonic version of the Euthalian Apparatus, with particular reference to MS Bodl. 942 in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, a 16th-century Fourth-Redaction Apostolos. Although this manuscript was clearly not written for any special purpose, it has an exceptionally complete apparatus. No immediate connexion can be established with the few other manuscripts with relatively extensive apparatus, which evidently represent separate lines of descent from the archetype. The chapter-headings, moreover, are of the Third Redaction. The implication is that as there are four redactions of the Slavonic Apostolos, so each, when first translated, was accompanied by its own redaction of the Euthalian Apparatus. Moreover, although most Fourth-Redaction manuscripts contain only the argumenta, there are those with more extensive apparatus, which invite further investigation. It is also clear that the Third Redaction has be en less isolated within the tradition of the Slavonic Apostolos than has hitherto been assumed. The importance of paratextual elements in the transmission of the Apostolos is stressed.
