In a previous post, I mentioned that the Bodleian Library had made available nice color digital images of the Hawara Homer papyrus roll. They have also added images of several early Christian manuscripts. I provide links to the images at the Digital Bodleian and links to the editions in The Oxyrhynchus Papyri below:
- Bodleian Library MS. Gr. bib. d. 6 (P), P. Oxy. IX 1170, Gregory-Aland P19, Matthew 10:32-11:5
- Bodleian Library MS. Gr. bib. g. 4 (P), P. Oxy. XIII 1597, Gregory-Aland P29, Acts 26:7-8 and 26:20
- Bodleian Library MS. Gr. th. e. 7 (P), P.Oxy. I 1, Gospel of Thomas
- Bodleian Library MS. Gr. bib. g. 3 (P), P.Oxy. VII 1010, 6 Ezra
All of these manuscripts are leaves from codices, but unless I’m missing something, there seems to be images of only one side of each of the first three here (Matthew, Acts, and Thomas). That last one in the list, P.Oxy. VII 1010, is a personal favorite. It’s a single leaf of a miniature parchment codex, and for this one, images of both sides are available:
Once again, many thanks to colleagues at the Bodleian Libraries for making these images freely available (and maybe we can get the other sides of the three other manuscripts soon?).
