    But this is a very slender argument. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. Hunt, eds. At the trench face, pairs of workers, usually a man and a boy, carefully dug out the detritus and sorted it for papyrus fragments. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered.

    This hope inspired them and their successors to sift through the mountains of rubbish at Oxyrhynchus for the next century. Grenfell and A. But how did his words reach us from the debris of Oxyrhynchus? The mass of papyri fragments, scrolls and folios excavated from Oxyrhynchus were published by the British scholars B. When you have n[o c]lo[thing], what do [you wear]? More recently a project at Oxford has been making publicly available online digital images of almost all the published texts, an enormous new resource for those interested in these texts.

    Within these sections, each text begins with a thorough introduction, a physical description, relevant paleography, a synopsis of contents, and an overview of any other prominent features or textual variants. Good luck! Many works on Egyptian and Roman social and economic history and on the history of Christianity rely heavily on documents from Oxyrhynchus. Grenfell and Hunt were part of the small group of scholars who created that tradition. We know more about Oxyrhynchus as a city, and about its people as living individuals, than we do about many more glamorous and famous historic ruins because because of one thing: the town garbage dumps. The documents provide grass-roots evidence for the law, society, economy and culture of Egypt from Ptolemaic, through Roman and Byzantine, into Arab rule.

The Oxyrhynchus papyri book

Indeed, I am amazed at how this great wealth has made its home in this poverty. Most of the papyri are from Oxyrhynchus and were written in Greek; there are a few hundred each in Egyptian hieroglyphic, hieratic, demotic, mostly CopticLatin and Arabic, and a very few in Hebrew and Aramaic, Syriac and Pahlavi.

For ten years, from toevery winter, when the Egyptian climate was mild, Grenfell and Hunt supervised hundreds of Egyptian workers, excavating the rubbish mounds, digging up tightly packed layers of papyrus mixed with earth. The following English translation of texts from the Oxyrhynchus papyrus fragments of the Gospel of Thomas is based on the complete digital reconstructions of pOxy.
