This papyrus, which contains the Gospel of Saint John, provides remarkable evidence of the origins of the modern book: as early as the 1st century A.D., the codex gave the new Christian community the same advantage as secretaries, lawyers and students - it was easy to consult, store and transport and new pages could be added - and is therefore an important stage in the history of this gospel. Until the 19th century, the oldest known manuscript was the 4th century Codex Vatinacus; The first fragment dating from the 3rd century was published in 1899 as part of the Oxyrrhyncus papyri. The Bodmer manuscript, which dates from the end of the 2nd century or the very beginning of the third centuy, is thus one of the oldest complete copy.Papyrus, Greek manuscript
