      Rob Bradshaw, on his blog, presents the abstract from James
      M. Leonard's SBL presentation:

      ---------------------------------
      Codex Schøyen is a substantial but fragmentary Coptic
      manuscript of Matthew’s Gospel which only became public in
      1999. It dates perhaps to the early fourth century, and may
      be the earliest witness to Matthew in 13 entire chapters,
      and to many portions of other chapters. However, its textual
      character has not yet been adequately analysed. Analysis of
      its textual character has been hindered, in part, by the
      atypical translation method reflected in its text which
      often makes the Vorlage difficult to discern.

      This paper demonstrates how an understanding of the
      version’s translation technique can help discern its
      Vorlage. Analysis of important test passages will show its
      textual character and relationship with other manuscripts.
      Ultimately, the paper will address the issue of whether
      Codex Schøyen is the closest ally to Sinaiticus and
      Vaticanus in Matthew’s Gospel.
      ---------------------------------

      Leonard is working on his thesis “The Coptic Manuscript
      Codex Schøyen and the Early Transmission of the Gospel of
      Matthew” in Cambridge.
      I am looking forward to the results!

      A while ago I looked into this briefly, too:
