Product Description

In this insightful study, Larry Hurtado tells the story of the physical early Christian canonical texts. He introduces readers to the staurogram, possibly the first representation of the cross, the nomina sacra, a textual abbreviation system, and the puzzling Christian preference for book-like texts over scrolls as well as other scribal features. Hurtado uses studies by papyrologists and palaeographers as well as New Testament scholars, and includes photographic plates of selected manuscripts to support his findings.
