Old Manuscript of Acts 6:1-8

An As Yet Unpublished Manuscript of Acts 6:1-8

The following Greek majuscule manuscript (a single page) with the heading PRAXEIS APOSTOLŌN (‘Acts of the Apostles’) was obtained on September 30, 2006 from Father Frans Huytink OSB who had acquired it by inheritance from a friar, named Father Van de Pavoordt. The text is arranged with three columns (measuring 6 cm each) in a Lectio Continua covering Acts 6:1-8b. The page (about 31 x 27.5 cm in size) might have been the first leaf of a manuscript containing (a larger part of) Acts.
