Abstract

Is it possible, or even methodologically correct, to (re)construct a community just from textual evidence, especially when this evidence is represented mainly by texts written in epic language (i. e., a language elusive in itself)? The paper deals with one of the most intriguing findings in Greek Christian papyrology of the last thirty years, the relevant corpus of previously unknown epic poems with Christian content of P. Bodmer 29–37.
