Reading Over My Shoulder

From Robinson & Pierpont, The New Testament in the Original Greek: Byzantine Textform

"Early manuscripts were written in capital letter format (uncial or majuscule). They lacked word division and possessed few (if any) diacritical marks, paragraph breaks, or marks of punctuation. These distinctions appear systematically only after the commencement of the minuscule era during the 9th Century."
