A possible PhD topic

I may have come up with something. I'm proposing to do a study of the interpretation and reception of 1 Peter in patristic literature. Just looking at the ACCS, there are 7 possible commentaries, though how extensive and how much they show dependencies I'm yet to investigate. They include: Didymus the Blind, Theophylact, Bede, Hilary of Arles, Oecumenius, Cassiodorus, and someone else whose name currently escaped me. That, plus a thorough working over of Biblia Patristica could generate some interesting material. Most of these smaller commentaries have no English translation, which would be an advantage.
