Contents

Description

Uncial 0220 measures 12 by 15 cm from a page of 14 lines. The recto (4:23-5:3) is legible, but little can be made out on the verso (5:8-12). The scribe wrote in a reformed documentary hand. The nomina sacra are written in an abbreviated way.

The Alands describe the text-type as "strict".

Uncial 0220 is an important early witness to the Alexandrian text-type, agreeing with Vaticanus everywhere except Rom. 5:1.[1] It is classed as a "consistently cited witness of the first order" in the Novum Testamentum Graece.[2] NA27 considers it even more highly than other witnesses of this type. It provides an exclamation mark (!) for "papyri and uncial manuscripts of particular significance because of their age."[3]

The nomina sacra are written in an abbreviated way: ΚΝ ΙΥ ΙΝ ΧΥ ΘΥ.

History

Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 3rd century.[4]

It was purchased at Cairo in 1950 by Leland C. Wyman,[5] a professor of biology at Boston University. Later part of it was bought by Martin Schøyen and now part of it is housed in the Martin Schøyen Collection in Oslo, and part in London.

The text was published by William Hatch in the Harvard Theological Review in 1952.
