  • New Testament papyri – written on papyrus and generally more ancient
  • New Testament minuscules – written in minuscule letters and generally more recent
  • New Testament lectionaries – usually written minuscule (but some in uncial) letters and generally more recent
  • New Testament uncials – written in majuscule letters, on parchment or velum.
