Papyrology Day Conference at Tyndale House

Tyndale House, Cambridge, UK

Tyndale House is pleased to host a day conference featuring research papers on a variety of topics connecting papyrology and Biblical studies and reading seminars for those who want to learn more about reading Greek texts on papyrus. All are welcome (some knowledge of Greek is recommended!), for the whole day or particular sessions.

Via Peter Head.  Go here for many more details.

An Early Fragment of 1 Corinthians

Peter Head announces

It seems that the Green Collection, in addition to the manuscript of Hebrews noted previously on this blog, is also in possession of a fragment of 1 Corinthians. According to a report on the Bethel web-site (found by a friendly sleuth), this is ‘a small fragment (ca. 1-3/4″ w. x 2-3/4″ h.) … (which) preserves portions of 1 Corinthians 8.10-9.3 & 9.27-10.6’.

Peter continues

Apparently a second-century date is being proposed, as it was for the Hebrews manuscript. [PMH: hmmm. I think I’ll wait for the photos.]

Good plan!  There’s more so go there to read it.
