medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture Re: [M-R] Regress
When calling the reading "Hava" for "Heva" or "Eva" into question I wonder whether critics noted that the Stuttgart Bilble lists in the textual notes at the bottom of the page that "Hava" is found in the early Bibles Sangermanensis and Amiatinus as well as in the Ravenna and Vetus Latina versions, and   that this is the spelling in the Biblia sacra iuxta latinam vulgatam versionem, Librum Genesis (Rome, 1926)?

In that case, what should we conclude from the test results?

1) VulSearch (or rather the Sourceforge text to which it links) indeed reads "Hava" in Gen 3:20, but so does my printed copy of the Stuttgart Vulgate (3rd ed., editio minor 1984);

2) Daniel goes all the way to 14:42, i.e. including the additional verse given in the Stuttgart apparatus. -- Paul Chandler

There is what Bob Kraft here in 1998 dubbed the "Bill East Test": that Eva
is spelled Hava in Gen 3:20 in the defective copies of the Stuttgart
edition. The other test is that Daniel breaks off at 3:23.
