The Letters of Paul are now available as an iPad App! In order to make the letters of St. Paul accessible to the general public, the Papyrology Collection recently released its leaves in digital format in an iPad app, called PictureIt:EP. Now, anyone with an iPad or iPhone can download the app from the iTunes store and flip through the leaves, experiencing this text as it was originally intended. The app will give you the feel of what it was like to read an ancient Greek book on papyrus, where the text is written without word division, punctuation, headings, or chapter and verse numbers. To aid the reader, this app also provides line-by-line translations and annotations about peculiarities and variations between this text and the common versions of the text seen in the Bible today. You can see a preview of the app and its features here. To download the app, follow this link or scan this QR code with your Apple device:
- The University of Michigan Papyrology Collection proudly presents, The Art of Conservation with Leyla Lau-Lamb. In this video, our papyrus conservator speaks about her work with the Papyrology Collection since 1992 and demonstrates first hand how she conserves these ancient and irreplaceable texts. The video was produced and directed by Kristen Zelenka, a 2012 graduate of UM's School of Art and Design, and made possible by the Parsons Fund for Papyrology.
- Papyrus conservation is an extremely delicate and labor intensive process that can only be completed by highly trained experts. Because of this, the cost of proper conservation often lies outside our budget for much of our collection. Therefore, we are asking for your help. Learn how you can help conserve a papyrus today!
