Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Ad Fontes: Original Manuscripts and Their Significance for Studying Early Christianity Selected Essays contains the table of contents, preface, acknowledgements, the list of abbreviations, and a list of books available on New Testament study. The author learned about how the writing materials, papyrus and parchment, were manufactured and finally produced on a large scale, that potsherds (ostraca) had been perfectly destined to serve for occasional notes and short documents, but now and then for poems and literary texts, too, and that there were diverse writing materials of significance for our modern understanding of reading and writing in antiquity, such as wood and lead for tablets, and leather for rolls (as were used at Qumran).

Keywords: Ad Fontes; early Christianity; New Testatment; original manuscripts
