The New Testament Papyrus Fragments collection brings together three significant fragmentary leaves from early papyrus codices of the Christian Bible. The fragments include passages from the Gospel of John and from Saint Paul's epistles to the Romans and Thessalonians in Greek. Their precise dating is controversial, but all can be dated to the second or third century CE. All probably originated in Egypt. Importantly, all point to the early use of the codex form (with pages that turn and writing on both sides of the support) for papyrus biblical texts.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
