Talisman-Scroll with Gospels-Texts at Goodspeed Collection
- The Goodspeed Manuscript Collection at the University of Chicago continues to digitize more manuscripts. Among the latest is something quite rare -- the remains of a parchment scroll that contains Greek New Testament material.
To be specific, it's the D'Hendecourt Scroll, produced in 1383, and it contains the following NT passages (just spot-checked):
Mark 1:1-8. (with "Son of God" and "Isaiah the prophet")
Matthew 6:9-13 (with the benediction).
