Barnes offered a text, though still based on the Byzantine vulgate edition of Homer, that incorporated the whole of previous scholarship, also employing Eustathius throughout.
He carefully mentioned all the manuscripts which he consulted, and tried to correct the text looking for patterns observed in Homeric metre, detecting many errors which marred earlier editions. He also added a new Latin translation, many scholia, variant readings and notes. Levine, 'The Battle of the Books', Ithaca , p.

Concerning the 'Symbolum Apostolicum' Apostles' Creed he comes to a for that time daring conclusion: 'The Apostles' Creed was not drawn up by the apostles themselves but came into existence in the congregation of Rome and was framed by the bishop and clergy of Rome as compendium of the doctrine of the apostles'.
