As mentioned earlier, I’ve been working on locating transcriptions for my Stuff Early Christians Read project. Since this summer, I’ve keyed a number of these transcriptions and have them up for review via Github (background, transcriptions).
At present, there are 33 transcriptions of “Christian” documents dated to the fifth century or before. There are a few different classes of documents:
- Homilies and Theological Fragments
- Hymnic Fragments
- Liturgical Fragments
- Prayers and Amulets
I’m really excited about this stuff (just read P.Berol. 2791, for example) and focused. However, I will need to take a break from this research sometime in January to focus on a paper on “Ethics and Language in Titus” that I’m to deliver in Mainz (yes, Germany) in September. More information on that in January, likely.
