The Novum Testamentum Patristicum project aims to produce commentaries on the patristic reception for each New Testament book. You can find the project website here, with a list of projected volumes, though not updated. The volumes which have been published so far can be found on the publisher’s webpage, and detailed presentations of the project here and here.

I am working on the volume on 1 Peter 2:11-5:14. For this project, I won a Postdoctoral Mandate from the KU Leuven Research Council (2015-2016) and a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Flanders Research Foundation (FWO, 2016-2019). I will signal here the related publications and papers.
