Finally, P. XI 5th cent. It unavoidably also raises the question why this very authoritative prayer has left so faint an imprint on the Graeco-Egyptian written record. As to the part of the liturgy to which it could belong, compare the beginning of the precommunion rite in the liturgy of St.

Knowing a prayer by heart presumably means that the orant does not need a copy of it and that it would have been recited more often than it would have been written down. Gerhards, A. Doeker and P. A magisterial example is ll. Whether extensive or compressed, the narratives in Greek prayers were drawn from and in their turn created the great pool of Greek identity, mythology. By far the most prominent Old Testament narrative featuring in early Christian prayers is the creation of the universe Gen — foregrounding God as an almighty demiurge, and thus as an appropriate recipient of the prayer.
In addition to P. Editions: M. Andrieu and P. Narrative elements which recall the foundational narratives of Christianity laid out in the New Testament and related texts prevail. The episodes conjured up depend on the type and setting of the prayer. See the parallels cited in Hammerstaedt, Griechischen Anaphorenfragmente, 28n.
Van Haelst, Catalogue, —8, no. The analogy, explicitly articulated in l. The qualification, occurring in the Old Testament Jer 38  70 but invested with new meaning in its association with the central narrative and rite of the Christian faith, captures the kernel of Christian identity and signals its points of contact with and, more importantly, differentiation from Judaism and its sacred texts. The intertext is 1 Cor Could it be ad hoc, conditioned by the educational use of the miscellaneous Barcelona codex?

The amuletic function of the artefact apart, there is little in the content of the prayer that relates directly to magic; there is, indeed, very little in it that may be viewed as non- Christian, in the broad sense of the term. The narrative sequence has both a laudatory and an argumentative function. Leonard and K. On possible Gnostic elements see Jacoby, Ein neues Evangelienfragment, 36—47 esp. Karl Preisendanz and Albert Heinrichs; 2nd ed. On the Christological proclama- tions in the early creeds see J. Kelly, Early Christian Creeds 3rd ed.
Alterity in Papyrus Prayers Perspectives on identity may also be gained from references or allusions, usually of polemical character, to rival groups, mentalities or practices. A possible locus of perspectives on otherness is open reference to enemies and threatening forces. An example is found in the liturgical prayer for the patriarch [sc. Tait-Petrie Re-edited by Cornelia E. The hand places the copy of this prayer in the later fifth century.
The text itself, however, may have been composed anytime between AD —66 and Mark 8. Mark Lit. This suggests either that the distinction orthodoxy vs. Mark, 8—9, 14—15 and 32—33, 92 and — Mark as in Vat. On ll. Les fragments sur papyrus Strasbourg Gr. Vermaseren; Leiden: Brill, , — For your name is mighty among all peoples, and incense is offered everywhere in your holy name as well as a pure sacrifice, upon which we beg and ask of you.
The Christian spiritual acts of worship belong among the pure offerings cherished by God, not the contaminated offerings of the Jews. An Unmixed Identity? The body of this prayer coincides with the conclusion of the Hermetic Poimandres, but in the Berlin papyrus collection the Hermetic text has been given a Christian frame, see more in footnote Yet it would appear that Christian prayer discourse espouses and promotes, even if in implicit terms, the ideal of uncontaminated Christian identity. This ideal is promoted in the doxology rounding off the anaphora in the Barcelona codex: P.

Klasse; Berlin: Weidmann, , — Roelof van den Broek; Leiden: Brill, , 3— The fragmentary state of much of the material, the many open questions regarding historical contexts and, above all, the fact that Christians pray to God first and foremost to petition or thank him, not to give an account of identity, means that what has eventually been teased out may be no more than intimations of identity, mere glimpses into the collective self-conception and consciousness of the Egyptian Christian orants.
The requests contained in the prayers of P. These On their interchange intervocalically see Francis T. Interchange cannot be ascertained in P. Mark preceding the communion, see Cuming, The Liturgy of St. Mark, His role is that of an intercessor, a mediator and guarantor of the eternal glory of God and of the prayers addressed to him. Papyrus prayers offer yet another perspective into how Christian identity had been crafted in vivid interaction with the Scriptural narrative pool.
Prayers ground the request on or convey the praise of God by means of compressed narrative sequences drawn from the NT. When moreover the prayer accompanies liturgical re-enactment, e. However, the prevalent ideology and aim in Christian prayer discourse still seems to be purity and exclusion of otherness. Andrieu, M. Ayres, Lewis.
