Abstract :
The article offers a discussion of the significance of the presence of the Apostolic Fathers in two of our earliest biblical manuscripts: the Epistle of Barnabas and the Shepherd of Hermas in Codex Sinaiticus, and 1 and 2 Clement in Codex Alexandrinus. It will be argued that the reception of these works does not provide support for the hypothesis that they were canonical for those who ordered the codices, and that it is more likely that they were included as recommended secondary books.
