      Dear List,

      I would like to signal a forthcoming volume (ready this summer) by Peeters on the NT Papyri in Context:

      Claire Clivaz - Jean Zumstein (eds.), in collaboration with Jenny Read-Heimerdinger and Julie Paik, Reading New Testament Papyri in Context - Lire les papyrus du Nouveau Testament dans leur contexte. Actes du colloque des 22-24 octobre 2009 à l'Université de LausanneBETL 242. Louvain: Peeters, forthcoming.

      An article is already available online, with the Peeters' permission and no definitive pages number:


      I offer there also general considerations on the digital age and the Greek NT edition.

      The volume collects sixteen contributions on Egyptian Jewish and Christian papyri, read in their context, in four thematic parts. The first one concerns New Testament and papyri, with two programmatic contributions demonstrating the present importance of textual criticism in New Testament exegesis, as well as a state of research on the most recent NT papyri. The second part focuses on the interactions between the Egyptian context, Judaism and the emerging Christianity, with notably the presentation of a fragment of a homily containing Lk 2.35-36 (P.Gen. IV 150). The third part shows how every papyrus can tell a story on early Christianity whether it concerns the Gospel of John or the Gospel of Thomas, or if one uses the multispectral imaging. The last part offers further considerations on papyri and theology, and on the way in which papyri can help to fill in historical gaps.

      Contributions by R. Burnet, C. Clivaz, J. K. Elliott, K. Haines-Eitzen, S. Honigman, T. J. Kraus, A.-M. Luijendijk, X. Gravend-Tirole, C.-J. Grüber, D. Pastorelli, J. Read-Heimerdinger, J. Rius-Camp, P. Schubert, D. Stoekl, M. Theophilos, J. Zumstein.

      Thank you to all the colleagues for their great involvement in this project!
