Had a nice day-trip to Oxford yesterday with another ETC blogger (a.k.a. Simon Gathercole). The Oxford folk were very kind and accommodating (considering we were from Cambridge, and one of us was a foreigner). We managed to see some good things in Duke Humfrey's Library (the oldest reading room in the Bodleian Library - and rather atmospheric compared with the manuscript room in Cambridge University Library):
P. Oxy 1 (most of a page of the Gospel of Thomas)
P. Oxy 1170 (=P19)
P. Oxy 1597 (= P29)
Then we spent the afternoon in the Papyrology Rooms of the Sackler Library (make sure you get this right) and saw:
P. Oxy 2383 (P69) [on this see here and here];
P. Oxy 4406 (P105);
P. Oxy 4803 (P119); P. Oxy 4804 (P120); P. Oxy 4805 (P121); P. Oxy 4806 (P122) [on these see here];
P. Oxy 4844 (P123); P. Oxy 4845 (P124) [on these see here].
So that was eleven (admittedly quite small) manuscripts in one day: no amazing new discoveries; great for checking a couple of details - it is always helpful to see the real thing no matter how carefully you've transcribed information from pictures, helpful for two current writing projects, not quite long enough for a really thorough look at the newest Oxy ones.
Oh, and in between we had a bite of lunch with the Inklings, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien at The Eagle and Child:
