[TC-Alternate-list] The Oldest Known Lectionary

A while ago, J Borland asked a question about what was the earliest known lectionary. I was going to answer by saying that P62 (I think it's P62, anyway) is possibly from a lectionary. But I remembered that Jost Gippert and others are working on one of the "new finds" ("New" in the sense that they were found in 1975): a lectionary containing text from Matthew, Luke, and John in the otherwise nearly extinct language of Udi.
This is probably the earliest known lectionary MS. You can learn more about it at

including pictures.
Yours in Christ,
James Snapp, Jr.
