A thorough investigation of the sets of chapter titles (capitula) found in Latin gospel manuscripts shows that many derive from Old Latin versions which predate the Vulgate. This study surveys the material gathered by De Bruyne in Sommaires, divisions et rubriques de la Bible latine (1914), with supplements and corrections. The first part describes systems of dividing the Gospel in manuscripts with an Old Latin affiliation in John. The second part analyses each of the fifteen series of capitula, providing details of their manuscript attestation, interrelationship and biblical text. An Appendix provides a table of chapter divisions for each set of capitula and the Old Latin manuscripts of John.
