Abstract

Prenant son véritable essor au xixe siècle avec la découverte de milliers de papyrus en Égypte, la papyrologie consiste à étudier les textes grecs et latins écrits sur un support transportable (papyrus, tessons de poterie, tablettes de bois ou parchemin).

Abstract

The texts compiled in Coptica Palatina were worked on by young scholars taking part in an International Summer School for Coptic Papyrology under the supervision of the editors. The volume offers editions of Coptic literary and magical texts, of private letters, as well as of legal and administrative documents, all complete with a commentary and a modern translation. These texts originate from different regions of Middle and Upper Egypt (Fayyum, Hermupolis, Bawit, Aphrodito, Esna, Apollonopolis magna) and are datable to the 6th/7th up to the 11th/12th centuries CE. The bulk of the material, however, comes from the 7th/8th century, the crucial period of Egypt’s transition from a province of the Byzantine empire to a province of the early Islamic caliphate.
