About ME

I did my doctoral research at the  Institute of Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing (ITSEE), University of Birmingham, working on Papyrus 46–the oldest surviving manuscript witnessing to the text of the Letters of Paul. My main focus was the identification of its scribal habits, not only from the standpoint of the text it reflects but also based on its physical aspect, encompassing pre- and post-production stages. In short, I align myself with those who spouse the view that manuscripts should not only be studied for their textual value but also for their value as ancient artefacts that can give us better appreciation of the socio-cultural context from which these manuscripts emerged. Prof David C. Parker supervised my research.

    Hope you will manage to have your thesis published so that we can read it!

    • Hi Akio, Thanks for the heads-up; I am hoping to publish my research but my administrative load presently prevents me from converting it into a publishable draft (the thesis is almost 1000 pages!). But do keep pushing me… it might do the trick 🙂

  3. I’m back in Manila again; but I was in Birmingham last week… for a bit nostalgic visit 🙂
