The Cambridge Oxyrhynchus Seminar

As part of the celebrations to mark the centenary of the publication of the first volume of Oxyrhynchus Papyri, a seminar series was held in The Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge, during Easter Term 1998. The purpose of the series was to display the range of texts which have survived on papyrus, primarily (though not exclusively) from Oxyrhynchus, and the uses — historical, linguistic, literary and philosophical — to which those texts may be put.
