New Fragments of P75

3 Comment(s) +
Klaus Wachtel sent details of a new article to the textualcriticism email group:

Marie-Luise Lakmann, 'Papyrus Bodmer XIV-XV (P75): Neue Fragmente' Museum Helveticum 64 (2007) 22-41.

This covers new material from Lk 4:1-2; 5:37-39; Jn 6:10-12, 24-27; 11:15-18, 31-33; 12:47 - 13:10; 14:9-10; 14:26 - 15:10; that has been rather inconsistently appealed to in different text-critical sources (NA27 often cites P75 in these places; but the IGNT John book does not offer any of them).

I haven't seen this article yet. Whoever sees it first might like to post some more details.


  1. I think Dr. Lakmann is responsible for the transcriptions in the NT transcript prototype on the homepage of INTF here:

    And the textual data from the new fragments seems to be included in the transcription of P75 (I only checked Luke 4:1-2), although the corresponding description of the contents of P75 (chapter/verse information) has not been updated yet.

  2. The article seems to be a useful summary, though goes back to restoration work undertaken in the 1980s.

    The abstract says:
    "Papyrus Bodemr XIV-XV (P75), one of the most important New Testament manuscripts, contains part of the Gospel of Luke and John, which were edited by Victor Martin and Rudolphe Kasser in 1961 for the first time. In 1976 Kurt Aland published 11 fragments that had not been previously identified. The new fragments further supplemented missing text. They had been mostly part of the first and last leaves of the codex, which had been glued to the book cover in order to stabilise the codex and could be partially detached from each other in 1980s at the British Museum. Some text could be then seen for the first time, other passages were made legible more clearly and completely."
    (my own, rushed, translation from the German)
