Keywords: Texts of Homiletic Character in Greek Papyri


According to LDAB (Leuven Database of Ancient Books) there are in total fifty-three Greek papyri described as ‘homily’. Twelve of these papyri contain fragments from texts whose authorship is doubtless. The other forty-one are fragments of texts that were previously unknown and cannot be attributed to any Christian author. The article discusses four of these fragments to present, on the one hand, the diversity of content of the homiletic papyri and on the other hand, the obstacles that a papyrologist encounters during the work on papyri.
