Chapter Summary

When the findings from 7Q5 caves with only a few scrolls were published in 1962 (2-3Q, 5-10Q), nobody suspected that years later the presence of a papyrus fragment with two verses of the Gospel of Mark would be maintained. The purpose of this chapter is two fold: (I) after a presentation of the status questions that is as neutral as possible those proposals for identifying the text of the papyrus fragment are critically assessed. With the help of fundamental paleographical and general papyrological notes to be made at the appropriate places, the discussion of 7Q5 (and, thus, of other heavily fragmentary remnants of manuscripts) should be had on a firm base, objectified, and consequently be seen in neutral terms.
