English summary: In this extensive commentary on 2 Corinthians Peter Arzt-Grabner explains the text of Paul from a papyrological perspective, applying papyri and ostraca from Graeco-Roman life to the chapters, topics, formulae and terms. It is a valuable supplement to traditional exegetical commentaries.Papyri, especially papyrus letters but also further documents, are used to illuminate the genre of a Pauline letter, compilation theories (including a possible explanation for the process of compilation), Paul's delayed visits to Corinth, the functions of letter carriers, imprisonment, diseases, scents and aromas, letters of recommendation, the collection for Jerusalem from the perspective of guilds and associations, defamation, and announcements of visits.The volume is concluded by indices on quoted papyri, Greek terms and personal names, and modern authors.
