Chester Beatty Biblical Papyrus III is the earliest extensive manuscript of the Apocalypse of John. It has, however, received very little scholarly attention. This gap in our knowledge will be filled by the author’s current research, where physical and nontextual features are analysed in connection with scribal habits and textual characteristics. This preliminary article draws attention to two aspects where such an integrative method has proven particularly fruitful.

Keywords: P.Beatty III; Apocalypse of John; scribal habits; corrections; re-inking
