Chapter Summary

This chapter first describes the two codices: Leviticus and Joshua Codices. It also describes the sort of divisions in the Joshua and Leviticus Codices of the Schøyen collection. The chapter then reflects on the limited divisions found in these codices by putting them back into their historical and textual history. With regard to the Joshua and the Leviticus papyrus, the author can state with certainty that there is no text division visible in the documents. Although the paleographers have put the Schøyen papyri close to Chester Beatty VI, IX, and X, which belong to the second group in the list of Tov, the two documents seem to witness to the third stage in the history of the text divisions, albeit without the paragraphoi and ektheses. The fact that the two papyri do not have paragraph signs and ektheses might, however, push them back into the second group.
