About the Event
Come hear Daniel Stevens, director of the Scholars Initiative at Museum of the Bible, as he discusses the Wyman Fragment, which is well known for preserving an early copy of the text of Romans 5. What is less known is that the back of this third- or fourth-century parchment leaf is so damaged it has been practically illegible until now. But with modern advances in imaging techniques, we are now able to read some of the text on the back. In this Lunch and Learn, Daniel Stevens will talk about the imaging of this manuscript and the recovery of its lost text, the evidence it shows for multiple scribes working on it, and will reflect on just how much we can learn from a damaged piece of parchment.
Lunch and Learn is a free, virtual and in person program held on the last Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:00 p.m. EST.
