Today, we borrow questions and approaches from a variety of other fields for the study of early Christianity, but we do not make full use of crucial physical evidence.

There are some recent developments, however, that may offer signs of a change for the better.

The earliest Christian manuscripts are papyrus, most of them either fragmentary or only partially extant, and the texts that they contain include those that came to form part of the familiar canon of Christian scriptures, as well as some of the many extra-canonical texts of the early Christian period, too.

As Peter Williams points out, 1-2 will not help researchers reach a date as precise as AD 80 or 90. But even this makes it difficult to reach a certain conclusion.Williams explains a best-case scenario: If for convenience we suppose that [1] other manuscripts in the mask are ones with dates that survive (remembering that for a majority of texts no date survives) and [2] that the mask luckily enough contains four texts with firm date formulae (which would be really nice, but quite unlikely) and that these date formulae show manuscripts from the years 50, 60, 70 and 80, [then] that would still not mean that they could not be put together with a manuscript from considerably later than the year 90 to make a mummy mask.E., such as the church in Dura-Europos and the earliest levels of the Roman catacombs.[2] But, if commonly-accepted paleographical dating of early Christian manuscripts is correct, these include several that go back to the middle to late second century, some of which have only recently been published, making them earlier than anything else extant as artifacts of Christianity in its earliest period. It is the belief that the miraculous stories about Jesus (being born of a virgin, giving sight to the blind, and so on) couldn’t possibly be true.
