"After a long time of preparation, and building upon the work of illustrious predecessors such as Walter Henning and Mary Boyce, Desmond Durkin Meisterernst and Enrico Morano have succeeded in composing the present edition. (...) its real scientific achievement should be valued by others." (Johannes van Oort, in: Vigiliae Christianae, 69.3, 2015, p. 336-337)
The edition contains an extensive introduction describing the difficulties the joint editors faced in the reconstruction of the difficult and incompletely attested text from the fragments, an edition of all the fragments, an annotated English translation, a complete glossary and plates of joined fragments.
