[1] Many church fathers traveled and lived in several parts of the Mediterranean, therefore the regional classification of many of them is problematical. This factor significantly qualifies the idea of local texts.

[2] The application of the Alands system to the church fathers my own and is provisional. Although the antiquity of some Church Fathers would suggest placing their testimony in category II, the fact that there are special challenges in verifying the accuracy of the received form of the biblical quotations found in the Fathers has led to assigning them all to category III.
