Are there what seem later additions in the Bhikkhu Vibhanga?

Hello everyone,

Can some knowledgeable people point to me what seems later additions in the Bhikkhu Vibhanga ?

Thank you

A lot! Generally speaking the analysis is later than the rules themselves. And we could also strity the analysis, but that’s less easy. In the Khandhakas, i’d say it’s pretty clear that they are somewhat later than the suttas.

As always, every large body of texts is formed over a period of time, and there will be earlier and later portions.

Doesn’t really matter. It’s going to be very problematic for different community to hold vinaya to the extend that they think this is the earliest. How to have an united recitation then when we visit one another?

Minimum standard is the whole mūla, if not the whole vinaya commentaries as well.
