The “Egerton” Fragment: Re-thinking its Date

January 18, 2018

Peter Malik and Lorne Zelyck have recently published an article examining the dating of an oft-cited fragment of a text, known as the “Egerton Fragment/Gospel.”  Originally, it was dated to the mid-second century CE, but in recent decades the date revised downward to the late 2nd or early 3rd century CE.  Malik and Zelyck seem to agree with this later dating, proposing 150-250 CE, with a slight preference for early 3rd century CE.

Malik gives a brief summary of their article here.  The full article appears in Zeitschrift fur Palaeografie und Epigraphik 204 (2017): 55-71.
