Summary:
"This volume contains a completed edition of Didymus the Blind's commentary on Psalms 26:10-29:2 and Psalms 36:1-3 that was discovered in Tura in the early 1940s. In 1984/85 Brigham Young University acquired five folia comprising quinion eight (Pss. 26:10-29:2) and the first bifolium of quire sixteen (Ps. 36:1-3) of Didymus' psalm commentary; in total this material consists of twenty-two complete pages of Greek text. This volume contains an introduction to these papyri, a transcription (articulated, diplomatic and prosodic), an English translation, as well as notes and commentary, indices and plates. As these papyri have never been published and are the last known portion of Didymus' commentary on Psalms, they are very important and sure to be of interest to both papyrologists and scholars of early Christianity."-- Publisher's website.

Notes:
""P.BYU Did." identifies part of a late-5th/early-6th century papyrus codex that was scattered after its discovery during the Second World War and is now partially recovered in various locations. In 1941 British military engineers discovered a hoard of at least eight papyrus codices in a subterranean cavern at Tura, about 10 miles outside Cairo, almost certainly in the very spot they had occupied since Late Antiquity. The Tura find restored otherwise unattested treatises by Didymus the Blind, by Origen, and by another unknown author. Five of the Tura codices contain Didymus's commentaries on principal books of the Old Testament, Genesis, Ecclesiastes, Job, Zachariah, and Psalms."--BYU Library, Digital collections, Didymus papyrus website (viewed October 28, 2019).
"The Commentary on the Psalms filled Tura Codex V; and it seems likely that more than one codex would have been needed to hold the entirety of Didymus's treatise on Psalms. Like the other Tura codices, the Psalms Commentary was dismantled and scattered almost immediately after its discovery. Within weeks many pages were recovered by the Cairo Archaeological Museum. Portions of the codex are in Geneva and London. The University of Cologne archives 182 of the 288 pages -- 12 of at least 18 signatures -- that originally comprised the Tura Psalms codex. Finally, a portion of the codex is at Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah. Since surviving signatures cover only the portions of the Commentary between Ps. 20 and Ps. 44, it seems reasonable to suppose a separate codex or more must have held Didymus's work on the Psalms outside the range covered in Codex V, i.e. Ps. 1-19 and 44 ff."--BYU Library, Digital collections, Didymus papyrus website (viewed October 28, 2019).
