Recently Mr Pavlo Smytsnyuk, one of the Hall's graduate students, made a gift to the community of a rare papyrus facsimile. 
 
Smytsnyuk's gift is one of only 980 copies of a facsimile of the Epistles of St. Peter. The original Epistle is variably dated to the second through the fourth century and preserved in a fragmentary form in the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana. In 1969 it was presented to Pope Paul VI by the Swiss collector Martin Bodmer.
