Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of this article is to present some new material on the Greek text of Melito. In what follows, Brent Nongbri will describe the rediscovery of the first leaf of the Greek copy of Melito's Peri Pascha in the Bodmer collection and discuss its place in the codex of which it is a part. We shall then jointly present a transcript of the text, supplemented where it is damaged with material from other sources and the published critical text. A new critical text follows, with notes in explanation. Finally we offer a new translation of the sections concerned.
