      Hi Mike
       
      If Roger Bagnall is correct in wishing to date early Christian papyri a few decades later than the current consensus then this could be relevant for the origins of the Gospel of Thomas.
       
      A few years ago Nicholas Perrin argued that the Gospel of Thonas was based on Tatian's Diatessaron,
       
      This was very difficult to reconcile with a/ the generally accepted dating of the Diatessaron and b/ the generally accepted dating of the Greek papyri of Thomas from Oxyrhynchus.
       
      If these papyri are actually later, ie none dating from before 225 CE, then Perrin's idea would be much more plausible.

      Early Christian Books in Egypt, Roger S. Bagnall, Princeton Univ. Press, 2009
      (The author is a papyrologist. Nothing specific to GTh, but some interesting
      general observations about dating, etc.)
       
       
      (There's also a review in German, for those who read it.)
