About the Bodmer Psalms Papyrus
This papyrus codex originally contained approximately 84 leaves (168 pages) of an ancient Psalter. More than half of the codex survives, preserving most of Psalms 17:45-118:44 in Greek (18:44-119:44 in most English versions). All 49 surviving leaves (98 pages) are in Museum of the Bible’s collection. The text was written by two different scribes whose handwriting differed noticeably in size, so the amount of text varies from 33 to 44 lines per page. This manuscript takes its name from Martin Bodmer, a Swiss collector, who purchased the manuscript in the 1950s.
