Blumell and Wayment present a thorough compendium of all published papyri, parchments, and patristic sources that relate to Christianity at Oxyrhynchus before the fifth century CE. Christian Oxyrhynchus provides new and expanded editions of Christian literary and documentary texts that include updated readings, English translations--some of which represent the first English translation of a text--and comprehensive notes. The volume features New Testament texts carefully collated against other textual witnesses and a succinct introduction for each Oxyrhynchus text that provides information about the date of the papyrus, its unique characteristics, and textual variants. Documentary texts are grouped both by genre and date, giving readers access to the Decian Libelli, references to Christians in third- and fourth-century texts, and letters written by Christians. A compelling resource for researchers, teachers, and students, Christian Oxyrhynchus enables broad access to these crucial primary documents beyond specialists in papyrology, Greek, Latin, and Coptic.

This is an exceptionally useful volume...The material presented here will enrich understanding of the life and concerns of this significant early Christian community. -- Paul Foster -- Expository Times
Blumell and Wayment are competent and conscientious editors. We thank them for the results of their labours, which should bring these texts to an audience wider than that served by the original publications. -- Novum Testamentum
This volume is sure to stimulate further investigation into the social, economic, and religious lives of Christians in Oxyrhynchus. -- Geoffrey S. Smith -- Review of Biblical Literature
