Norman Perrin (1920-1976) was Associate Professor of New Testament, at the Divinity School, University of Chicago. Professor Perrin was internationally known for his work on Redaction Criticism of the New Testament.
According to Norman Perrin (WHAT IS REDACTION CRITICISM? 1969) the project of Redaction analysis begins with the proposition that the Gospel of Mark is the earliest Gospel, and that the Gospels of Matthew, Luke and John used the Gospel of Mark as a model, more or less loosely. The modifications (redactions) they made to Mark are fairly easy to discern. However, if we also assume that there was an oral tradition before the Gospel of Mark (or, as some say, a very early written tradition, or Ur-Marcus) it is clearly a scientific challenge to discern its exact contours, and where the author may have made changes, if any.
The contribution made by Professor Norman Perrin in this new science is still widely today.
