      Subject: Chester Beatty Biblical Papyri

      May I please get your help in answering several questions concerning
      the Chester Beatty Biblical Papyri?

      1. Are you familiar with the following article:

      Young Kyu Kim, "Palaeographical Dating of p46 to the Later First
      Century," Biblica, Vol. 69, No. 2, 1988

      http://members.aol.com/egweimi/p46.htm

      If so, have you or your colleagues published any response to it?
      And could you share with me your thoughts on the validity of his
      arguments?
      Also, do you know how I might contact Kim?

      2. I found reference to the following presentation in the 1996 Society
      of Biblical Literature (SBL) Annual Meeting Sessions Abstracts
      Index (s153.html), S153 New Testament Textual Criticism Section

      S153 "The Palaeographical Dating of P46" by Bruce W. Griffin, University

      of Oxford

      "P46 is usually assigned to circa AD 200. But recently Kim has argued
      for a date in the reign of Domitian (AD 81-96). This paper
      offers an analysis and critique of the
      palaeographical evidence for the dating of P46."

      Are you or your colleagues familiar with Griffen's presentation?
      If so, could you share with me your thoughts on his presentation?
      Do you know how I might get a copy?
      Also, do you know how I might contact Griffen?

      3. Could you offer any suggestions as to how or where I might locate any

      other recent discussions of the dating of P46?

      4. Who would you suggest as the top 5-10 papyrologists specializing in
      palaeography would would be competent to discuss the
      dating of P46 in detail?

      Thanks for any help you can give.
