From the Record Update:
The U-M Library’s most famous papyrus, known to scholars as Papyrus 46 or P46, now is widely available in the form of an app for iPhone and iPad. Users of “PictureIt: EP” can flip through high-resolution images of the third-century codex — the oldest known copy of the Letters of St. Paul — as they would through pages of a book.
“This gives an idea of what it was like to read an ancient book, with no capitals, no spaces between words, and no punctuation,” explains Arthur Verhoogt, acting archivist of the library’s papyrology collection. A new app allows users to view the Letters of St. Paul as they would a book. (Photo courtesty of U-M Library) To download the free app for an iPhone or iPad, search for “PictureIt: EP” at iTunes.
