History

The following survey is based on P. Canart, Les papyri grecs de la Bibliothèque Vaticane et du Musée Égyptien du Vatican. Histoire et inventaire, in : R. Pintaudi (ed.), Miscellanea Papyrologica (= Papyrologica Florentina, VII), Firenze, 1980, pp. 371-390.

The Vatican Library, which was in the main constituted before the end of the 19th century and thus before the great papyrus finds, houses relatively few papyri, but some of them are of great importance. The Greek and Coptic papyri are preserved in the Biblioteca Vaticana, the Egyptian papyri in the Musei Vaticani. Demotic-Greek papyri were included in the Biblioteca.

The Greek Papyri number 105 items. The papyrus collection begins with six papyri acquired by the librarians cardinals G.M. Della Somaglia (1827) and Angelo Mai (1831) (P.Vat. Gr. 1-6). Some more were added to the collection in the early 20th century (P.Vatic. 7-23). In 1961 an important group of Greek and Coptic papyri was donated by Jean Doresse (P.Vatic. Gr. 24-49), belonging to the archive of Dioskoros. In 1968 the Swiss collector Martin Bodmer donated P.Bodmer VIII, with the letter of St. Peter, to pope Paul VI. Some wooden tablets and tabulae ceratae were added in 1981-1985 (P.Vatic. 58-63). The latest addition are Ptolemaic papyri from mummy cartonnage (P.Vatic. Gr. 64-105).

The 27 Latin papyri all belong to the Byzantine archives of Ravenna and were described and published by Jan-Olof Tjäder, Die nichtliterarischen lateinischen Papyri Italiens aus der Zeit 445-700 (Skrifter utgivna av Svenska Institutet i Rom, 19), 3 vol., Lund-Stockholm 1955-1982. A description of the Vatican group is given in vol. I, pp.73-79.

iIn 1909 the Vatican Library owned 4 Coptic papyri. In 1981 3 wooden tablets were acquired (P.Vatic. Copt. 10-13). On another important coptic papyrus codex, see H. Quecke - R. Kasser - N. Besson, Orientalia 61 (1992), pp.169-204. In 1961 Jean Doresse donated 21 Coptic papyri of the Dioskoros archive.

The Vatican Library also possesses one Aramaic and two Demotic papyri. The Aramaic papyrus is published in the Corpus Inscriptionum Semiticarum II.1 no.148, pp.166-167.
