The third and final element that Wallace discusses in his summary is the emergence of text–forms. A text–form, or text- type, is a group of manuscripts that have a consistent pattern of readings. He discusses the Alexandrian, “Western,” Byzantine, and Caesarean. After discussing these categories in general, he summarizes relevant world history and how it led to the dominance of the Byzantine text-type.
