A New Series on Papias of Hierapolis

I have greatly enjoyed reading through Stephen C. Carlson’s Papias of Hierapolis Exposition of Dominical Oracles: The Fragments, Testimonia, and Reception of a Second Century Fragment (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2021). I would like to go through his analysis of the authenticity of the fragments from Papias’s lost work and the testimonia about his life in the Patristic and Medieval periods and add some of my informal reflections. I will start by reposting Papias’s famous excerpts about the Evangelists Mark and Matthew.
