Abstract he notion of “mouvance” is valid and thoroughly operational for analyzing the textual tradition of the Acts of Pilate, as it is a fl uid and profoundly unstable tradition. By applying the tools and meeting the requirements both of classical philology and of the “New Philology”, the editors of the Acts of Pilate seek to organize and interpret this complex manuscript tradition, while underscoring the proliferation of variants and the transformative dynamic of the text. However, the current editorial project does not satisfactorily account for the insertion of the Acts of Pilate in a collection of texts that can be identified, by and large, as a coherent corpus. The development of certain electronic tools could offer a solution to this difficult problem.
