Novum Testamentum Patristicum

Novum Testamentum Patristicum

In case you’re looking for more info on the project, here are a couple of directions. First, there is the project website, which includes a presentation and the list of projected volumes. Then there’s the publisher’s webpage. Thirdly, Andreas Merkt, one of the three editors, has published a description in Sacra Scripta 10/1 (2012), 15-31, here.

The latest installment, however, can be found in the most recent issue of Early Christianity, where the three editors of Novum Testamentum Patristicum sign together a presentation of the project: Andreas Merkt, Tobias Nicklas and Joseph Verheyden, “Das Novum Testamentum Patristicum (NTP): Ein Projekt zur Erforschung von Rezeption und Auslegung des Neuen Testamentes in frühchristlicher und spätantiker Zeit,” EC 6/4 (2015), 573-595, here.

This blog is built around my post-doctoral project, a volume on 1 Peter 2:11-5:14 which I am preparing for the Novum Testamentum Patristicum series. As such, it reflects my scholarly interests which are related one way or another to this.

One can expect notes on events that have to do with the Novum Testamentum Patristicum project, on Patristic exegesis in general, on reception history, on 1 Peter, on Petrine apocrypha, on their manuscripts, and on whatever else might be deemed of some interest. Enjoy!
