Sample text

A fragment of a leaf is in the Chester Beatty Library. P 66 is the oldest of the biblical Bodmer papyri (towards AD 200, perhaps earlier). Text type: pre-Alexandrian (see p. 107; see also p. 97). P. Bodmer V I I - I X (P72) contains in their entirety three Catholic Epistles, 1-2 Peter and Jude. The book was made at the beginning of the fourth century by gathering together a mixture of texts which had been copied in the third century for private use. Jude and 1-2 Peter 12 Chapter one have, respectively, seven and thirty-six numbered pages out of an original total of about 180.

The information provided in the title (inscriptio) is often reproduced or added to in a final note (subscriptio). It sometimes happens, too, that mention is made of the number of lines (OTI%0£, stichos, a line of sixteen syllables) contained in the book, a commercial procedure known as stichometry, used as a means to calculate the payment due to the scribe. In books that were meant to be read in public the text was sometimes divided up into sections according to sense, a procedure followed by the schools of rhetoric, whereby a new line was started after each group of words which could be spoken together.

As far as Acts and the Pauline Epistles are concerned, it is the diversity of the text in the papyri and the uncials which has attracted the interest of most scholars. In 1983, however, a project was begun in Abilene (Texas) under the direction of C. Osburn, where a fresh collation is being made of virtually every Greek manuscript of Acts with a view to the publication of a new critical edition of Acts (International Project on the Text of Acts). For the Catholic Epistles, efforts to classify the minuscules have been made over the last ten years in America, Germany and France.
