Beati Petri Apostoli Epistulae. Ex Papyro Bodmeriana VIII. Spanish transcription and translation.
Book study of the facsimile edition (which also we sell) known as the Bodmer Papyrus VIII, the part containing the Epistles of St. Peter, whose original is now preserved in the Vatican Library.
The codex, almost square, is well preserved generally. In many cases, the margins of the pages look like they are complete, which allows to calculate the original dimensions of the codex quite closely at about 16 x 14.5 cm. It was written by several hands, probably four, believed to have been happening from the beginning of the third century and the first half of IV after Christ. The meeting of the various parts composing it must have occurred during the fourth century.
The pages that make up the Papyrus Bodmer VIII was donated to Pope Paul VI by the Swiss collector Martin Bodmer in June 1969 and kept in the Vatican Library the original document. Currently unbound they preserved, protected each bifolio, as usual, by a transparent protective film, while the binder that entered the Vatican Library has been incorporated into the background Encuadernaciones.
This splendid facsimile edition was made by the Vatican Library and published jointly with the Spanish publishing Testimony, to mark the 25th anniversary of the Pontificate of John Paul II.
