Chapter Summary

Any ancient manuscript has two dimensions, one physical and one intellectual. Almost all of the discussion of Tchacos Codex has been on this intellectual side of the texts, since few have had experience, much less interest, in the physical side. Judas is more interesting than are codices, at least to most people. The following questions are addressed in the chapter: Where is the Tchacos Codex? Have the efforts to attach fragments physically to the leaves to which they belong been discontinued? When will Tchacos Codex be returned to Egypt? What happened to the full-size color reproductions? What is to be learned from the leather cover and cartonnage? What was the original length of the codex and the number of tractates? This chapter addresses some basic questions about the Tchacos Codex and its codicology.
