Chapter Summary

P46 is a codex of the Pauline Epistles, usually dated as from ca. 200. Kim isolates a number of features in P46 that appear in papyri of the first century or earlier but not in later papyri. The papyrus has also been found to have a close relationship to the text of 1739, a tenth-century manuscript that preserves "a relatively pure form of the Alexandrian type". P46 has 185 singular substitutions, illustrating the variety of influences to which the scribe was subject, and including some truly remarkable readings. Harmonizations of various kinds occur, and by far the most pervasive is harmonization to the immediate context.

Keywords: Harmonizations; P46; papyrus; Pauline Epistles
