Trial until 3 April 2015: Corpus dei Manoscritti Copti Letterari

The Griffith Librarian at the Sackler Library is running a trial of Corpus dei Manoscritti Copti Letterari. A username and password is required for this resource which is available through Weblearn (SSO required).

This database includes:

  1. Clavis Patrum Copticorum: list of the authors and works of the Coptic literature with information on manuscripts, content, and critical problems;
  2. Manuscripts: list (a) of the individual collections, (b) of the Coptic codices either well preserved or reconstructed, especially from the Monastery of St. Shenoute, Atripe (White Monastery);
  3. Texts: electronic edition of Coptic texts with Italian translation;
  4. Grammar: a computational grammar of Sahidic with a list of words according to the grammatical categories; and
  5. Bibliography: Complete bibliography for Coptic studies.

Please look out for the fact that it is not updated frequently (in the order of the old AEB) and let Diane Bergman know by 3 April what you think about the quality of the scans in the manuscripts section.
