Kuster, Ludolf

Kuster, Ludolf, a learned German Greek scholar, who was born at Blomberg, Westphalia, in Feb. 1670, held first a professorship at the Joachimsthal Gymnasium in Berlin, and later enjoyed the favor of Louis XIV, and a pension with membership in the French Academy, and who died Oct. 12, 1716, deserves a place here for his edition of Mill's Greek Testament, published at Rotterdam in 1710, and entitled Collectio Milliana, etc. Kiister's additions consist of the various readings of twelve MSS., of which the most important is the Codex Boernerianus, afterwards admirably edited by Matthaei. The edition also contains a preface by Kiister, and a letter of Le Clerc's discussing a number of various readings, of some historical interest. According to Tregelles, it is usually considered inferior in accuracy to Mill's original edition.-Kitto, Cyclopcedia of Biblical Literature, ii, 764.
