I’m a professor of History of Religions at MF Norwegian School of Theology, Religion, and Society in Oslo.
I started this blog in 2017 as an outlet for things I had to leave out of a book I had just completed at the time (God’s Library: The Archaeology of the Earliest Christian Manuscripts, Yale University Press, 2018). The blog allowed me to tell some of these interesting stories and to comment on other news related to archaeology and religion.
The banner is an image from Codex Bezae (University of Cambridge Library, MS. Nn.2.41, folio 71 verso), which has been digitized and is available online at the University of Cambridge Digital Library.
The site icon is from a stele of Timocrates, a copyist “trained in correct writing” (IG II² 12794).
