Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the remains of a codex leaf selected from the unsorted storage boxes in Charlottenberg in the 1990s. The original provenance of the codex is unknown, but it may derive from the White Monastery. This was one of a number of Coptic texts/fragments gathered together by Paul Mirecki as of interest for further work and editing. This 'new' fragment of the Liber Bartholomaei (LB) evidences a parallel but shorter version to the three previously known recensions (A, B, C), and is published in the chapter as the first evidence of a Rec. D. Although it may well derive from the White Monastery (as also Rec. A and B), its text appears closer to Rec. C, in which substantial portions of all four extant columns can be paralleled. Nevertheless, the especial interest of the piece is that it evidently lacked a major section(s) of the LB.
