Welcome

ⲡⲗⲉⲓⲥⲧⲁ ⲭⲁⲓⲣⲉⲓⲛ. Thanks for stopping by. I’m a scholar in the area of religion specializing in early Christianity. I’m currently working on ancient Christian manuscripts. I’ve just completed a book on that topic (Excavating God’s Library: The Archaeology of the Earliest Christian Manuscripts), which is due out next year. This was a really fun book to write. While researching it over the last few years, I encountered so many fascinating stories about Christian manuscripts (and the people who study them!). So, I’m planning on using this site primarily to share some of these interesting, entertaining, and just plain strange stories. I hope others enjoy all this as much as I have.

I’ll also periodically post things that I think might be useful to people who are interested in studying early Christian manuscripts–resources that aren’t readily available elsewhere online. So again, thanks for taking the time to read. ⲉⲣⲣⲱⲥⲑⲁⲓ ⲩⲙⲁⲥ ⲉⲩⲭⲟⲙⲁⲓ.
