Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the archive of Theophanes, a minor official from the Egyptian Thebaid whose travel accounts have survived by chance among the papyri of the John Rylands Library in Manchester. It presents a detailed analysis of these documents and considers some implications for the Pauline itinerary in Acts. The source-critical hypothesis of the Pauline itinerary rests fundamentally on the observation of certain narrative peculiarities in the presentation of Paul's journeys in the latter part of Acts. The chapter discusses the literary-historical question which underlies the hypothesis itself rather than the various source-critical theories which have been put forward about which sections of Acts may or may not go back to such an itinerary.

Keywords: archive of Theophanes; Egyptian Thebaid; literary-historical question; Manchester; Pauline itinerary; source-critical theories
