'''Papirus Chester Beatty''' ({{lang-en|Chester Beatty Papyri}}) merupakan kumpulan naskah [[papirus]] kuno yang dikumpulkan oleh Alfred Chester Beatty semasa hidupnya, yang meliputi sejumlah manuskrip yang berkaitan dengan [[Alkitab]] [[Kristen]], yang disebut kelompok '''Chester Beatty Biblical Papyri''', maupun yang tidak berkaitan dengan Alkitab, seperti [[:en:Chester#Berkaitan Beattydengan Medical PapyrusKedokteran|Chester Beatty Medical Papyrus]].

Since all but two (P. XI, XII) of the eleven manuscripts are dated before the 4th century, they present significant [[textual criticism|textual]] evidence for the Greek Bible as it existed in Egypt prior to the Diocletianic persecutions where Christian books are said to have been destroyed and a century or more earlier than the [[Codex Vaticanus Graecus 1209|Codex Vaticanus]] and [[Codex Sinaiticus]]. Although some of the scholars who first studied the collection considered some of the New Testament manuscripts, especially ''P. Chester Beatty'' I (P<sup>45</sup>) to be of the [[Caesarean text-type]], this has little support today. The textual character is generally described as being eclectic, mixed, or unaligned. The manuscripts provided many new textual variations, especially because the Old Testament manuscripts predated the revision activity of [[Lucian]] and [[Origen]] and others, and the New Testament manuscripts are some of the earliest yet quite extensive examples of the corresponding books.

Originally, there were believed to be eight manuscripts in the Chester Beatty collection that contained portions of the Old Testament. However, what was believed to be two different manuscripts actually belonged to the same codex, resulting in a total of seven Old Testament manuscripts in the collection, all following the text of the [[septuagint]].
