Christian-B. Amphoux, «Le Canon du Nouveau Testament avant le IVe Siècle», Vol. 21 (2008) 9-26
The recent debate on the date of the Muratori Canon has allowed it to be established that this was the first known list of Christian writings. But from the text called 'western', a stage is reached that is prior to the forming of the New Testament, whose history ranges from Clement in Rome, before the year 100, to Polycarpus, at the end of his life, around year 160, by way of Ignatius of Antioch, Marcion and Justine. The canon for the books of the New Testament is almost completely established towards the year 160, as a result of the dual tradition that comes at the same time from Antioch and Ephesus, written within the Jewish-Hellenistic culture, which will soon be abandoned in favour of the Greek-Roman culture.
