To have here a collection of Christianity's non-canonical texts from its first four centuries, with photographic plates of the early papyri and with transcriptions, is very useful. Readers with an interest in these extant fragments of apocryphal books and samples of the writings of the Apostolic Fathers set out in this handy format are enabled to explore the influence and diversity of these early documents. -- J.K. Elliot, University of Leeds, UK In addition to 200 high-resolution pictures of papyrus contained in the book, the physical quality of the volume is, in general, remarkable. -- Julio Cesar Dias Chaves Laval theologique et philosophique (Bloomsbury Translation)
About the Author
Thomas Wayment is Professor of Ancient Scripture at Brigham Young University, USA, and a founding member of the Ancient Textual Imaging Group. He is currently publishing the papyri in the Brigham Young University Collection. He is the author of "A Reexamination of the Text of P.Oxy. 2949" in Journal of Biblical Literature 128 (2009) and "A New Transcription of P.Oxy. 2383 (P69)" in Novum Testamentum 50 (2008).
While there exist a variety of editions of the New Testament Apocrypha in English, German, French, Spanish, and Italian, the actual Greek texts have remained difficult to access until now. This book brings together these Greek non-canonical Christian texts from the pre-canonical period in an accurate and comprehensive collection. Including over 200 high quality images of the papyri and indicating where they are housed in the world today, this volume provides a highly valuable reference to facilitate the study of these fascinating texts.
