This project was written to facilitate the writing of the dissertation of Michael Jones, a graduate student at the University of Cambridge. All of the material in this database has been available in print form for some time; but there was never an easy way to search through the manuscripts using multiple parameters. There are two options for searching the database: searching passages or searching manuscripts. Pressing ‘Search Passages’ with the desired book (e.g. ‘Luke’), chapter, or verse (or a combination of all of these) typed into the appropriate field will return all manuscripts that contain the particular passage. Likewise, pressing ‘Search Manuscripts’ will return only the manuscripts with the parameters you enter.
For this project Michael adapted the code he had previously written for the CHS project on Homer and the Papyri.
